The organisers will allow DAN competitors moving up in 2022 to compete in both their old division and new division (for Dan individual categories only) – you will need to register the player twice as two separate competitors e.g. Jane Smith 1 and Jane Smith 2– amend the date of birth of the second one so it appears in the 2022 category – pairs & teams for players moving up can only enter one (your choice of 2021 or 2022 category). Players can only enter a maximum of one pair and one team.
