Ross Sceats, 35, a Gold Badge Chief Umpire and Silver Badge Referee, has sadly passed away on 7 April 2014 at his home in Sant Pol, Barcelona, Spain.

For nearly ten years he fought a brain tumour but during this time he continued working many ITF Pro Circuit and other tennis events.

Enric Molina, Head of Officiating said: "it is with great sadness that we received the news this morning about our dear friend Ross. Those who met him knew what a true gentleman he was and what an example of courage, dignity and sportsmanship he set for all of us."

Our thoughts and prayers are with him, his sister Romina, and parents Robert and Sheila.
