2015 Women's ACWC - announcement of Ranking Places

The MC has received requests for 17 Membership Places and has decided to award England two extra Host Places.  These must be taken up by midnight GMT on the Closing Date of 25 January 2015.  Some Members have already submitted the names of players but are free to change their allocations until that time.

The MC has approved the following allocation of other places.

Wild Card Places

One place has been awarded to Dagmar Stepankova (CZE) under SR App 2 para 2.1.2 (the encouragement of players from developing Members).   Australia, New Zealand and Wales put forward a total of six WCP candidates and England put forward all 18 players who had made themselves available and did not qualify for Ranking Places.  However, the highest-ranked Australian candidate secured a Ranking Place and the MC does not believe that any of the other candidates stands out sufficiently to deserve nomination based on the available criteria set out in SR App 2 para 2.

Qualifier Places

The four top finishers in the Qualifying Tournament will receive places in the main event.
