|A formal system for scoring softball games in NZ was established in 1968, and the first scorers’ manual was written in 1974. A score sheet and standard set of scoring symbols was developed, and a sophisticated qualification system established to ensure consistent scoring standards throughout the country. Since then we have come a long way. Official scorers are appointed to all games at every National Tournament and most club tournaments, and many teams have regular team scorers.
The NZ scorers qualification system involves a theory exam followed by a qualifying practical and a badge exam. The practical exams are sat at a National Tournament.
