Additional Notes for Competitors

Prize Money will be shared in the event of a tie.

A player's rapidplay grade in the ECF July 18 list (August revision) will be used to determine eligibility to play in a section.

For the purposes of this competition an 'F' grade is deemed to be the same as an Ungraded player.

'F' Grade and Ungraded players must give full information regarding their playing ability, including previous results and any grading held previously. Failure to do so may render a player ineligible for a prize.

Smoking is not permitted on the school site

Ball games are strictly forbidden inside the school building
