The rules and conditions of tournaments not covered by sections 5, 6.1 and 6.2 are at the discretion of the tournament organiser.
Tournament organisers are asked to note that entrants may assume that:
unless stated otherwise on the entry form.
Further information and advice for tournament organisers is available in The BGA Organisers Handbook. This is currently under revision. There is some supplementary material in the Notes for tournament organisers at the bottom of the list of forthcoming tournaments.
Tournaments supported and recognised by the BGA are encouraged to publicise and solicit BGA membership for players who are not existing BGA-members.
Council will endeavour not to make changes to the requirements for tournaments, e.g. the Levy, without prior consultation with tournament organisers and normally with at least 3 months advance notice of such a change. Council will normally use the bga-policy mailing list for such consultation, so tournament organisers are encouraged to sign up to this list.
