Special prize of RM30 each have been allocated for the best U12/U17/Unrated player whilst another RM40 each for the top Veteran and Best Lady player.

Closing date is 16th March before 6pm and those who register late for the event will incur an additional RM15. No late penalty charges will be imposed to members but, entries are only limited to the first 80 players hence, once all the seats are filled, it maybe difficult to squeeze more people in.

Payments can be made to our bank account as per the details contained in the entry forms but players are requested to scan their transaction slip and email it together with their entry forms.
