The Partner Club may issue Master Points free of charge for supervised play sessions of 12 to 16 boards. Students will love collecting Master Points. They give an independent record of achievement from the governing body of the game very early on. It inspires confidence and a continuing sense of achievement. Because they are playing in their own protected environment they can achieve the early ranks quite quickly.
