Posted on

It has come to the attention of the Essex County Masters Rules Committee that there are no female participants who are neither:

  • A past Essex County Masters Ladies Champion, or
  • Played in the event in 2016

Please note the amendment to Rule 18, section 2, subsection f)

A first-time female entrant is not eligible to be The Ladies Essex County Masters Champion.

Further, the amendment continues, subsection g)

A female entrant must have played the previous year to be eligible to be The Ladies Essex County Masters Champion.

For the first time ever in Essex County Masters history, there will be a ‘repeat’ Ladies Champion. 

This rule is arbitrary and participants may not contend this decision, according to The Essex County Masters Regulations, Requirements and Code of Conduct clearly stated in the Preface to The Essex County Masters Regulations, Requirements and Code of Conduct that all decisions by the Essex County Masters Rules Committee are arbitrary and participants may not contend any rule change.

Thank you for understanding and your participation.
