Following last year's competition we were aware of the growing need for the master's qualifying age to be lowered, so this year we decided to offer a master category to start at 35. As well as event organisers, we are also affiliate owners and we noticed within our boxes that a 35+ category would be a hugely competitive and exciting division.
Originally we had planned for a 35-44 category and a 45+, however following uproar from the masters within our community about a 44 year old having to compete with a 35 year old whippersnapper we decided to review the ages of entrants from last year. We now have 3 master's categories! The finals places available reflect the % of entrants into each respective category in the online qualifiers.
