The British Minigolf Association has published the Official Matchplay Rankings List for the 2013 season.

Following her excellent third place finish at the BMGA British Matchplay Championships at Boscombe Chine Emily has moved up from 41st place to be ranked at 22nd of 44 places (47 players).

I didn't compete in a matchplay event this season and have dropped from 15th place to 36th spot.
