SUSPENSION POINTS & GRIEVANCE
Players who bend the rules, display bad manners, throw equipment, or use foul language may be subject to suspension point(s). Any player who receives ten suspension points within a 12-month period shall be suspended from competing in sanctioned tournaments for three months (first suspension).
Players are not permitted to enter two tournaments with overlapping sanction dates. Players who do enter overlapping tournaments will be disqualified from both tournaments, lose ranking points from both tournaments, and will receive five suspension points.
