Do you have any photos?

The photos of BUAofE umpires in action from the old site are all very small and not particularly useful for the sort of gallery that we would like to include on the new site (as you can see below!). Therefore, if you have any photos of an umpiring nature and including BUAofE umpires (present or former) that you would like to share (and that you have the right to share!) please send them to us for inclusion on the site. Ideally, the bigger the photo the better - we can always reduce the size of a photo, but we cannot increase the size of a photo without it becoming pixelated and blurry. Eventually, we would like to have galleries for individual tournaments (e.g. every All England), so if you have photos from previous tournaments, please send them through with a note to say what the tournament was, where it was (if that's not obvious!) and when it was. Please send your photos to honsec@buaofe.org.uk.

Suggestions...

If you have any suggestions for the layout and/or content of the new BUAofE site, please send an email to honsec@buaofe.org.uk with your suggestion(s). If applicable, please include links to sites that already have features that you’d like to see in operation on our own site (e.g. FAQ, Wiki, video and image galleries, social media feeds, etc.) While we may not include all ideas (at least initially), it will be useful to know what sort of content you, the visitors to our site, are looking for.
