Competitors who are not accepted will be kept on a reserve list.

Withdrawals

Withdrawals must be made in writing by the athletic union or students’ union and e-mailed to Luke Gallen, the BUCS Event Manager.

Withdrawals after the entry closing date (Thursday 8 September 2022) will still be charged the entry fee (Reg 3.2.4).

Withdrawal of a competitor does not guarantee a replacement into the competition. Reserves will only be charged an entry fee if they are accepted into the competition. Competitors who do not withdraw, and do not register at the venue, will be classified as a ‘no-show’ and charged the entry fee and an additional £50 fine payable by the competitor’s athletic union or students’ union (Reg 4.4).

Reserve List

Competitors who are not allocated a tee time on the start sheet will be included on the reserve list. Following the close of Stage 1 entries the reserve list will be arranged in handicap order. If an accepted competitor withdraws from the competition their tee time will be offered to the next competitor on the reserve list. BUCS will contact the institution of the reserve competitor to offer this tee time.

If a reserve competitor is unable to take the tee time BUCS will contact the next institution until the tee time is taken. Reserve competitors should communicate their availability with their athletic union or students’ union and remain available should withdrawals occur.

If a competitor on the reserve list no longer wishes to be considered for the competition; they must inform their institution and withdraw following the process detailed in the entry information.

If the competition is at capacity; entries received within Stage 2 will be added to the reserve list. Where applicable; priority for tee times will remain with the entries received before the Stage 1 entry closing date.
