Do I need to enter the Pairs events in advance if I am playing in any of the Teams Championships?
The answer is – YES ! These are completely separate events and it is not automatic to enter the Pairs Championships, nor is there any entitlement to do so – registration must be made in advance and payment made either in advance or on site (credit card or cash).
It is very important that you register for the pairs events BEFORE the start of the teams event that you are playing in. This will enable you to drop in as described on this page.
Players eliminated before the start of the Knockout Phases of the teams events may decide to enter the pairs at that stage and their entry will be accepted if there is sufficient space. However, they are strongly advised to register their Pairs entry in advance if possible.
