For all the withdrawn players the organisers can invoice the entry fee to the relevant Member Association.The invoice for entry fees must have a deadline for the payment and the information that if no payment has been received after the deadline has passed, the organisers will forward the invoice with the registration of deliverance and the copy of the original entry together with the original invoice to BADMINTON EUROPE. All this must be done within 2 (two) months after the end of the tournament. Every unpaid invoice for entry fees sent to BADMINTON EUROPE by a tournament organiser following the above-mentioned procedure, shall result in an additional administrative fine of 100,00 EUR for the Member Association who is addressed in the invoice.

Before the withdrawal deadline has passed, a promotion from the “Reserve List” to the Main Draw or Qualification draw is obligated and will be done automatically, unless the respective player/pair has withdrawn from the “Reserve List” beforehand.
