  • M40 = 40 to 49 / (80 to 99)
  • W40 = 40 to 49 / (80 to 99)
  • M50 = 50 to 60 / (100 to 120)
  • W50 = 50 to 60 / (100 to 120)
  • M60 = 60+ / (120+)
  • W60 = 60+ / (120+)

Teams of two only

  • X21 = Mixed (combined age 34* to 79)

All ages are calculated from the competitors age on 31st of December for the year of competition.

Competitors remain in an age class for the whole calendar year (January 1st – December 31st) regardless of individual date of birth.

Leagues with events that cross the calendar year (January 1st – December 31st) carry the age classes over until the league has finished.
