Frenchman Damien Dumusois has been appointed to the ITF/Grand Slam Officiating Team and will also be working in the role of Regional Officiating Officer for Africa.

A Gold Badge Chair Umpire, Dumusois has officiated at the pinnacle of the sport, having occupied the umpire’s chair for four men’s singles finals at Roland Garros, as well as the women’s final in 2010. He also umpired the 2017 men’s singles final at Wimbledon, as well as a number of Grand Slam doubles finals.

In his new role as Regional Officiating Officer, Dumusois will be the point of contact for French-speaking countries in Africa and will work alongside fellow Regional Officiating Officer Iain Smith in managing the officiating programme for Africa.

“I’m very much looking forward to working together with CAT and the African National Officiating Managers in my new role as Regional Officiating Officer,” he said. “Together with ITF Officiating and Iain, we will try to provide opportunities and create a pathway for African officials.” 

Dumusois has been a Gold Badge umpire since 2010, when he subsequently became part of the International Joint Team and ATP Elite team. An ATP employee from 2015-2018, Dumusois chaired more than 100 finals across singles and doubles and was twice selected for the ATP finals in London.

“Damien is a highly qualified official with a vast amount of experience,” said Smith. “It’s a positive step to have Damien as part of the team to continue developing African officiating.”
