Grand Final Referee

Globetrotting Melbourne referee Kim Ivett adds enormously to her CV as she takes charge of the Final of the Paul Hunter Classic for Ladies in Germany tonight after completing the final of the World Under 21 Girls Championships in Belgium last week. Her dedication and commitment to her craft is now paying off in a big way.

Congratulations Kim.
