Just had a thought (4th time this year i know)

So having heard the arguments I agree Woman only tournies are a good idea, to bring in new players, but do they?

The only place i have seen this advertised is on PS? so is PS bringing in new players with these or not?

does anyone know an answer?

I'm all for women being treated as 'special little somethings'.

(I just wouldn't call any of them that for fear of having my nuts cracked. PS, it seems, does not share my admiration and / or trepidation for all the Xenas and Salts out there)

They must bring in new players Grad b else they would not exist. Profit driven companys do not act for ideological reasons unless those reasons tally with improving thier bottom line. Such is the nature of any profit driven company, and it cannot be any different.

Also i know that the PCA has women only events (and Men only events too), so I can only assume that the same is true of the whole EPT curcuit.

as they are relatively new its not a given that they do attract new players.

I understand the theory but would like to here someone say it works.
