The top eight players from last year’s tour will be seeded for the 2013 season. The ranking system will run over a two year period. Once again this year, at the end of all five events the top eight Scottish players in the rankings will be GUARANTEED an international place in either the Scotland Ladies A or one of the B teams for the following season. As regular entrants are aware, we have run a new proposed ranking system during 2010, 2011 & 2012; a decision will be made before commencement of the 2013 on which ranking system we will use; I will updated the ladies website with both completed ranking systems.

I would also like to inform you at this stage the tour will be closed and therefore only Scottish players are eligible to enter. This decision goes against the feedback from you guys (questionnaire) but after recent discussions with some players, the opinion of my players has changed and therefore reflected in this year’s events.

I have also been working on a timing schedule which will allow our tour events to be double elimination, giving you all more pool for your money.

I look forward to receiving your entry but should any queries arise, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours in Sport,
