Grading Thresholds (Rule 6.3)

 

The League allows players flexibility in “playing up”, and the option for some players to “play down”.

 

Rule 6.3 has the following effects:

     a) Whichever team you are registered for, you may play up as many times as you wish for higher teams in your club.

b) Graded players only - If you are registered for a team but are below the grading threshold for a lower team in your club, you may play as many times as you wish for that lower team.

c) However where the lower team is in the same division as the team for which you are registered, the grading threshold applicable is that for the division immediately below (hence the inclusion of “Division 5” in the table below).

d) Additionally, the players registered on the two lowest boards for a team are permitted to “play down” as many times as they wish, as long as the lower team is more than one division below the team for which they are registered.

 

The grading thresholds for the 2006-07 season are:
