Entry is limited to 20 universities teams. Priority is giving to competitive teams in general. Due to the different levels of golf development across countries national quotas may apply to allow teams from less developed countries to register too. The past tournaments had teams with average handicaps of +1.5 to -9, with an overall average handicap of -3. Early registration is strongly advised to avoid disappointment.
The registration process is divided in two phases. International teams can register exclusively from January 2011 on. Then German universities can register their teams. Exemptions are given to the top-4 teams of the past year. Wild cards may be issued beforehand, entries may be reserved to allow for team trials. Notification of acceptance will be sent out usually within one day.
