Opens will be mixed with placings in 1st male, 1st female, then 2nd and 3rd. If a competition has a higher number of female competitors at Opens level the prize money will be split.

Keeping it a competition
A new rule to drive development will be in place going forward, This is to ensure that we always have competition and people continue to develop and be pushed to their limits.
this rule is based around competitor numbers, for example if there is only 3 people in the 16 and under, prizes will not go to 3rd place only to second, to make sure people have to compete to earn a podium finish.
To sum this rule up, There is no guaranteed placings at competitions.
