PLEASE NOTE:  Players may have a grade and grading reference but still not be a member. Some tournaments may require players to be members (we are not aware of many that do).  Anyone who has a grading reference can be searched for on the ECF Grading database – therefore parents can search for their own child/children’s ECF grading by using the link below.
