Ranked Masters Pairs

2019 Cadet Pairs winners: Suman Rai & Kay Vowles

The Ranked Masters Pairs competition is open to players with a Master Point rank of 5* Master or below.  Heats are held in clubs, from which the top 50% of eligible pairs qualify for the single-session final held in April.  Players may play in as many heats as they wish.

There will be a separate prize for the highest-placed pair of players who have not yet reached the rank of Master.

Players who are below the masterpoint limit at the start of the season (1st September) are eligible to play in Ranked Masters events for the entire season.

This competition replaces the Cadet Pairs which was held in previous years.
