Clarification of the Drop-in Rules for the Pairs events
Players that are eliminated from the KO stage of any team event can drop-in to the applicable Pair event, namely, Rosenblum Teams to Open Pairs, McConnell Teams to Women’s Pairs and Rand Teams to Senior Pairs.
A pair whose players are entered in different team divisions can drop in to the Pair event associated with the player that is eliminated last. and drop in to either Pair event if eliminated at the same time. The pair should register for both Pair events, and pay onsite when it is determined which Pair event they will enter.
In all cases, team eliminated from the knockout phase (i.e the round of 64 onwards as applicable) can only enter up to three pairs in their applicable Pair event.
