Adult events can include both men and women players, however they may be limited to just one gender. Adult events can also be based on skill level or age group, possibly both. There are a number of options with Adult events, and tournament directors can choose to host as many or as few divisions in these two categories as they wish. Junior players are allowed to participate in adult skill events. Some juniors choose to play in these events to gain experience and possibly improve their rating. Adult divisions are as follow:
Players can only compete in a skill division higher than their current rating (e.g. a player rated 3.2 can enter 3.5 division or higher but cannot enter the 3.0 division) If you have been participating in a league you may already have started to get a rating which would help to define your skill level. However, if this is your first tournament and you don’t know which skill level to sign up for click below.
2.0 (E), 2.5 (D), 3.0 (DD), 3.5 (C), 4.0 (CC), 4.5 (B), 5.0 (BB), 5.5 (A), 6.0 (AA)
When you sign up for an age group event this normally means you will be playing people close to your age, not necessarily close to your ability. Not all age groups are offered at adult tournaments, so you would sign up for the age group that you are age eligible for. Events age groups can range from 35+ through to 85+.
Open, 35+, 40+, 45+, 50+, 55+, 60+, 65+, 70+, 75+, 80+, 85+
