Hi folks!
I need to know how "a judge" is called in volleyball, basketball, badminton, squash and golf (if any exists) games. I know we use "referee" for football, rugby and hokey, whereas "umpire" for baseball, tennis and cricket.
I´d appreciate your help a lot. Thanks.

    In the speficic terminology of basketball and volleyball, the "judge" is known as the referee.
    Badminiton officials are called umpires. Squash officials are termed the "marker" and the "referee." You can look here for the entire glossary.
    In general, sports "judges" are known as officials. Specifically, they're known as "officials" in golf.

    In ice hockey, the assistant referees are called linesmen.
