If a player did not compete in the Regional Championship then a player's skill rating is taken as that at May 30 2018 (end of Season rating)

All players ratings will be checked to ensure they are placed in a division for which they are eligible. Players will be moved to the correct division is necessary.

Players will qualify for a division on a first come, first served basis until there are 16 in a division. At that time a waitlist will be formed and players will be moved into the main draw when there is a withdrawal. 

If players are placed on a waitlist they may enter another division for which they qualify whilst remaining on the waitlist for the original division. If a place becomes available then the player will be asked to choose which division they wish to compete in. Players may only compete in one division.
