The WCF is pleased to announce the publication of version 1.1 of the Ranking Regulations.The only change is to amend clause 4.5 from 50% to 75%. It now reads:
4.5 Open nature of event
An event is not an Eligible Event if more than 75% of the places are reserved for members of one club.
The new version of the Regulation can be downloaded here: WCF Rankings Regulations version 1.1 or on the Statutes & Regulations page of this website.
The change was requested by Spain who have been struggling to run tournaments and grow our sport in an environment where nearly all their clubs are member-only sports clubs. The WCF Ranking Operations Committee (ROC) reviewed the request and concluded that no harm or damage was likely to result from this change. WCF Council voted to approve the change on 17th January 2022.
