(b)          $1 per competing Player per Tournament session.

(c)          $1 per A Point.

On-Line Master points

Masterpoints are available on-line and updated monthly (the database is not "live").

CLICK HERE or click on the 'Master Points Online' link in the right hand panel to search the Master Points database. If you are a long-time member any points earned before 1992 are not shown as they are from a previous system. However, the 'total points' does include these.

On-line reports include masterpoints received from clubs/centres at the time of publication. If you are missing any club points, please advise your Club Masterpoint Secretary. If you are missing Tournament Points, check the outstanding tournaments list first by CLICKING HERE.

Ranking Competition Results

New Competitions have been set up to fi nd the top ten ‘A’ point earners within each Ranking, split into male and female, during a current year. These results are updated on a monthly basis.

The Baden Wilson (for which there is a trophy) is for the top ‘A’ point earners in a calendar year based on points earned in New Zealand (Australian competitions do not count, therefore any awards from Australian competitions will be subtracted from the total at the conclusion of the calendar year).
