Please remember that the previously announced changes with regard to Novice Sessions came into effect on 01 October 2014. This affects Player Session Rates (PSR's) 04, 11 & 22 - the codes previously used for submitting results of the various different types of teaching/supervised play sessions.
The EBU Board decided that as of 1st October codes 4 and 11 are no longer available in order to simplify the structure and address the issue that under the old structure players who didn’t pay (and may have received help) were awarded Master Points, while those who paid half-price didn’t receive any.
PSR 22 will remain and be the only code for submitting ‘novice sessions’, whether they are supervised play or training sessions.
We hope you will agree that these changes are very positive and will encourage the provision of Novice Sessions at clubs in an effort to help membership recruitment.
If a club chooses not to submit the results from novice sessions, but an individual wishes to become an EBU member in order to receive the EBU magazine and enjoy the other benefits of EBU membership, then they can always join as a ‘Direct Member’.
