2019 Handicap tournament

11th February 2019 09:00 to 5th May 2019 17:00

The 2019 Handicap Tournament begins on Monday 11 February and will end this year with a Finals Day on Sunday 5 May.  The entry cut-off date is Wednesday 6 February.

All members, including Juniors (aged 11 and over, playing with a yellow ball and with prior approval from Head Coach Jake), are welcome to enter.

Last year we made a change to the rules for the singles event to encourage more players to enter. The SINGLES event was the best of 3 tie-breaks up to 25 points. Positive and negative handicaps will exist but these matches will be of a much more predictable length. The change seems to have been well-received generally so we plan to stick with it. Please give it a go.

In the DOUBLES, pairs will be drawn from the entrants and the handicaps will be considered for the pair as a whole. The doubles event will continue to be contested over 3 conventional sets with tiebreaks at 6-6 if needed.

Rules will be posted on the notice board alongside the draw.

Please enter asap and encourage others to enter too. It would help if you can enter by email to Tony Howard at anthony.j.howard1@gmail.com
