10th-11th April: Men and Ladies finals.

Winning challengers take the challenged position on the ladder and the
losing player moves down one rung on the ladder (including defaults);
all players formerly positioned between the two thus also move down one
position. If a challenger loses, everyone remains where they are.

They will be moved down the ladder as many places as they are going to
be away for in weeks (up to a maximum of four positions). They can then
not be challenged until their return date. If a player doesn't do this
they will automatically default on every challenge they receive. During
the playoff stages players must be available to arrange matches in the
planned weeks and on the day of the finals; if you are not available
you will have to retire.
