Which Codes Should be Used for Sessions?

When uploading your club sessions, you want to make sure you use the right code as the EBU has a number of different Universal Membership subscription codes.

  • Code 10 - Normal club session charged at the standard subscription price for the date it was played, plus any county charges
  • Code 04 - Novice Session without magazine points. No UMS is charged; uploading results for properly constituted Novice Sessions using this code is optional and is normally only used when a code is needed to upload results for display by Pianola or similar organisation
  • Code 22 - Novice Session with magazine points. Half the standard subscription price. No master points are issued and the event is not graded for the NGS
  • Code 11 - ‘Social or supervised sessions’. Sessions for which a full rate is charged (as they do not qualify as a ‘novice’ session), but the session should not be included in the NGS and no Master Points should be awarded (e.g. some players receive guidance). The sessions do qualify for magazine points

For more information see the recent Club Management Focus article; Information on Novice Sessions and full list of UM Subscription Charge Codes

If you need any further information on submission codes, please contact our Club Liaison Officer, Bev Puvis - bev@ebu.co.uk or 01296 317206.

New Search Box

We have now launched a new search box with more capability than the previous search function. This should allow you to find articles and information more easily on the EBU site. The results will be displayed slightly differently and some visitors may see adverts, depending on their browser software. However, it is hoped that this will improve the relevancy of results.
