Master Point Ranks

A player’s accumulated holding Green and Local Points is expressed under the collective term of Master Points. The ranks of Premier Master and above require a specified number of the total points to have been converted from Green Points. For example, 7,500 Local Points and 2500 Green Points qualify the holder as a Regional Master. The ranks and requirements are listed below in increasing order of seniority.

NB Green Points are listed here in the way you will see them on your Master Point record, but historically these requirements were listed in batches of 100 and are still described that way in event programmes. So if it was said in the past that you needed 25 Green Points to be a Regional Master, what was really required was 25x100 ie 2500 Green Points. If a competition programme tells you that you get 1/2 green for winning a match, it means 50 Green Points.
