Tournament Eligibility

This division has a requirement of 60% female or marginalised gender participation, meaning that a minimum of three players on the roster must identify as female or a marginalised gender.

This tournament works upon a trust-based system - each staff member is responsible for ensuring the team meets the requirements (see above). We do recommend teams fill in information regarding gender on the roster when signing up to this tournament, alongside sharing pronouns with admin/BEF staff.
