History

Beginning in 1989, Carol Walker and Avis Scullin hatched a thought for a Scoretable Committee in 1989. The idea was presented to the VBA (as it was then), and rejected. The idea was put forward again in 1990. This time it was considered to have merit and Lexie Lattanzio was given the job of doing a feasibility study.

On 21 May 1990, a meeting of interested parties was held at the old Albert Park Stadium, and so it began.

A committee was elected to look at how a Scoretable Committee should work, this committee consisted of:

  • Lexie Lattanzio
  • Dianne McMahon
  • Carol Walker
  • John Walker
  • Jacqui Clancy (VBRA Coordinator)
  • Avis Scullin

On 31st May 1990, at Bulleen Stadium, work began. They started to develop a database of score table officials and they started to document the requirements for Levels 2,3 and 4.

By the end of the year, Avis was urging for national standards of accreditation for score table officials across Australia. This saw guidelines for teaching and evaluating score table officials across Australia. This saw guidelines for teaching and evaluating scoretable officials established in Easter 1991, through collaboration between Trevor Barker (SA), Libby Woods (WA), Merv Narin (NSW) and Avis Scullin (VIC).

Today, scoretable accreditation is recognised across Australia in a collaborative sharing of skills and experience from all levels.
