Sportsmanship And Fair Play

Policies to be used in governing pairings and division placement:

  1. All players must register prior to playing or be subject to forfeiture of matches and eligibility.

  2. Previous year winners of all divisions except the Men’s Championship Division and Ladies Championship Division will be advanced to the next highest division.

  3. Exception to rule (2) above, should a winning team change partners, the new team(s) will be allowed to play in the same division. Exception to this rule will be, should a team or player become a finalist twice in one division, then this team or player will be advanced to the next highest division.

  4. Should a team or player advance to the next highest division and fail to win a prize, then the following year that team or player can return and play in their previous division.

  5. Should a team win the Men’s Championship Division or Ladies Championship Division two years in succession, they will be required to change partners the following year.
