    We generalise the work of Segre (Ann Mat Pura Appl 4(70):1–201, 1965), Cameron et al. (J Algebra 55(2):257–280, 1978), and Vanhove (J Algebr Comb 34(3):357–373, 2011) by showing that nontrivial m-ovoids of the dual polar spaces (Formula presented.), (Formula presented.) and (Formula presented.) ((Formula presented.)) are hemisystems. We also provide a more general result that holds for regular near polygons.
