Registration

Please read the registration guidelines carefully. The 2014 registration procedure is identical to the 2014 procedure of the Dutch Open. Please read the following text carefully.

Eligibility for divisions

Professional and amateur players can play in a professional division in so far as they meet the specific age and gender requirements:
Men Pro Open (MPO): no limitations.
Female Pro Open (FPO): no limitations.
Men Pro Masters (MPM): Born 1974 or earlier.
Men Pro Grandmasters (MPG): Born 1964 or earlier.
Men Pro Senior Grandmaster (MPS): Born 1954 or earlier.
Juniors (MJ1): Born 1995 or later.
Men Amateurs (MA1): Not received cash at PDGA event in previous 12 months.
Women Amaters (FA1): Not received cash at PDGA event in previous 12 months.

Professional players are allowed to enter an amateur division if they obtain a reclassification to amateur status by their PDGA country representative.

Reserved spots

10 spots are limited and reserved until April 22nd 2014 2012 to women (FPO & FA1 divisions).
After this date, any reserved spots which have not been taken will be assigned to waiting list players in other divisions on a first come, first serve basis.

Wildcards

Between April 23rd 2014 and May 5th 2014, up to 18 spots are being given to waiting list players by the Tournament Director the way he seems fit.
Payment for any assigned wildcards needs to be made before May 5th 2014. Any wildcards not assigned by May 5th 2014, will be re-assigned to waiting list players, on a first come, first serve basis.

Waiting list

Upon opening registration, all players can register, but only those meeting the rating requirements for the current stage. Players registering while players field ( = confirmed + registered + reserved spots) is filled, will be placed on waiting list (ordered by registration date), and should not make any payments until they are placed on the players list.

Registration deadline

The last day of registration is May 30th 2014. After this date you need to contact the Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein! for inquiries about a possible late registration. In case you get a place, you need to pay an additional late registration fee of 10 EUR on top of the normal division entry fee.

Registration process

Spots are reserved by submitting the online registration form.
The spots in all divisions and stages will be assigned according to registration order.

Differently to previous PDGA Europe seasons, registration will be done in phases. Your PDGA rating (using the rating update of December 17th 2013) will decide from what date onward you can register.

Stage 1:

MPO: 975+
FPO: 900+
MPM: 950+
MPG: 925+
MPS: 875+
MJ1: 925+
MA1: n/a
FA1: n/a
Stage 2:

Stage 3:

To avoid confusion, here's an example of how to read the table.

During Stage 1 player X is allowed to register, players Y and Z are not.
During Stage 2 player X and Y are allowed to register, player Z is not.

Registration Conditions

Stage 1 = Registration Weeks 1 & 2 (March 1st - 15th 2014), to begin on a date announced by the TD. Only Stage 1 players who qualify for Stage 1 in the table above may register. Payments for all players registering during Stage 1 must be received by the tournament by the end of Stage 1. Any registering players whose payment is not received by the end of Stage 1 will be removed from the list of registered players. If the event is filled before the end of Stage 1 all players registering after this time will be put on a waiting list in the order in which they registered and will not pay their entry fees.

Stage 2 = Registration Weeks 3 & 4. (March 16th - 30th 2014) Only Stage 2 players who qualify for Stage 2 in the table above may register. Payments for all players registering during Stage 2 must be received by the tournament by the end of Stage 2. Any registering players whose payment is not received by the end of Stage 2 will be removed from the list of registered players. If the event is filled before the end of Stage 2 all players registering after this time will be put on a waiting list in the order in which they registered and will not pay their entry fees.

Stage 3 = Registration Weeks 5 & 6. (March 31th - April 14th 2014) Only Stage 3 players who qualify for Stage 3 in the table above may register. Payments for all players registering during Stage 3 must be received by the tournament by the end of Stage 3. Any registering players whose payment is not received by the end of Stage 3 will be removed from the list of registered players. If the event is filled before the end of Stage 3 all players registering after this time will be put on a waiting list in the order in which they registered and will not pay their entry fees.

Stage 4 = Registration Week 7. (February 12th - 18th 2014) Open to Pro and Amateur Women only until the event includes a total of 10 Women total, including women who have been on the waiting list. Any registering Women whose payment is not received by the end of Stage 4 will be removed from the list of registered players.

Stage 5 = Registration Weeks 8 & 9. (April 23rd - Mai 7th 2014) During this Stage the Wildcard places will be assigned. Entry fee payments from players receiving Wildcards must be received by the end of this stage.

Stage 6 = Registration Weeks 10 & 11. (May 8th - 22nd 2014) If there are remaining spots available they will be offered to players on the waiting list in the order in which said players registered. It is up to the TD how to handle this, but the recommendation is to send an e-mail on the first day of week 10 to x number of players on the waiting list and to give them until the last day of week 10 to pay. Then the same procedure can be followed in week 11 for possible remaining spots.

Stage 7 = Registration Week 12. (May 23rd - May 30th 2014) Any players who withdraw are replaced by the players who are now at the top of the waiting list. Refunds of entry fees for players who withdraw from an event after paying are at the TD's discretion. The PDGA recommends that all paid players who withdraw at least 1 week in advance of an event be given a 100% refund less any administrative/bank costs involved.



Here is an example of a EuroTour event player registration sequence.
Event capacity: 90 players including 18 wildcards.

Stage 1: 34 players register, including 3 women. 2 payments are not received by the Stage 1 deadline. Players accepted = 32.
Stage 2: 28 players register and pay, including 2 women. 3 payments are not received by the Stage 2 deadline. Players accepted = 25.
Stage 3: 24 players register, including 1 woman. The first 11 players including the 1 woman are accepted, all of whom pay by the Stage 3 deadline. The event now has 68 players, including 6 women.
Stage 4: 2 more women register and pay.
Stage 5: The TD then assigns the 18 Wildcards all of whom pay within 2 weeks. The event now has 88 players.
Stage 6: The remaining 2 spots are awarded to the 2 players at the top of the waitlist. The event is now full at 90 players.
Stage 7: Of these 90 players, 3 withdraw. Their entry fees are refunded and their places are awarded to first 3 remaining players on the waitlist who pay immediately. The event field is now complete.
I have read the registration conditions and agree with them.
