This would mean that in order to play in the Masters Pairs both players need to be a Premier Master or below. The free entry can be claimed for the competition immediately following notification of their promotion, or deferred for one year (i.e. those notified in April 2021 can reclaim their free entry in the event in spring 2022 or spring 2023). In order to claim your free entry: enter with the host club as normal, and then contact the EBU to notify us that you will be taking part - firstname.lastname@example.org or 01296 317203.
