 Note:
In Singles' and Foursomes MatchPlay, a player's handicap on the 1st March will determine which competition(s) she is eligible to compete in during the current year.
However, in the current year, a player (in Singles' Match Play only) may reduce her handicap to a maximum of two shots below the handicap range and may continue to be eligible to play in her division excluding Junior Cup where a player may reduce her handicap to a maximum of 1 shot only below the handicap range

Example 1.
A player whose playing handicap is 28 on the 1st March is eligible to play in the Minor Cup. If her handicap goes up to 29 during the year she is not eligible for the Challenge Cup as it is her handicap on the 1st March that determines eligibility but she may still play in the Minor Cup (Step Down)

Example 2.
A player whose playing handicap is 31 on the 1st March is eligible to play in the Challenge Cup and if she lowers her handicap to 27 (max two shots below the range) she is still eligible to compete in the Challenge Cup and she is also eligible to compete in the Minor Cup. If her handicap lowers to 26 (3 shots below the range) she is eligible for the Minor Cup only.
If she goes down to 26 and then back to 27 she is eligible to play in both Challenge Cup and Minor Cup.
