ANNUAL HANDICAP CHAMPIONSHIPS 2018 Rules
1) The competition will be segregated according to handicap up to semi-final stage.
When handicaps for each player/pairing have been decided by the tournament committee, the players above a certain handicap (to be decided by committee) will be drawn in one half of the draw and the players below that handicap will be in the other half.
This ensures that players in both halves of the draw will be playing against other players with a reasonably similar handicap up to semi-finals at which stage both sections will be integrated. This year we are looking to reduce the duration of games by introducing a plus advantage element to the handicap system.
2) When the score reaches deuce in any game, the next point wins the game. In singles matches the receiver may decide on which side s/he wishes to receive the deciding point. In doubles the receivers may decide on which side they wish to receive the deciding point (but cannot switch sides to do so) In mixed doubles the Lady receives from a female server and the men receive from a male server.
3) Matches will be best of three sets. If the score reaches 6 all in any set, including the 3rd set, the winner of the next game will win the set. Rule 2 will continue to apply.
4) Matches will be on played on week nights and at week-ends to reduce the overall length of the competition.
Applications are available in the Club house or maybe downloaded from the attached file.
We hope to see a large entry for this very popular and sociable event.
