IOMSRA Rules – some Key rules about eligibility for Divisions
I would just like to highlight 2 Key rules which determine players eligibility to play in the different divisions. These rules were agreed at the AGM, they are intended to ensure that players play against players of a similar level and competition is fair.
Rule 1 – Players ranking restricts the Division that can play in
Players are expected to register for a team in a division that reflects their ability and the IOM SRA national rankings will be used to determine a player’s eligibility to play in any division.
-If a player is ranked 25 or above they may only play in the “A” division.
-If a player is ranked 50 or above they may only play in the “A” or “B” divisions.
Rule 2 – Players ranking in their teams restricts the Division that can play in
The top 4 nominated players in a team are deemed to be the core players, and these may not play in a lower division than the one they are nominated in. Players nominated 5 and lower may play down 1 division as long as the ranking that they have allow’s them to do so, refer to rule 1 described above.
