Waiting listUpon 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 processSpots 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.
