Handicaps & League Tables
How Are the Handicaps and League Points Worked Out?
The handicapping system for the society has been approved by the Captain and works on the following system.
A player that wins the competition regardless of the score will have his/her handicap reduced by 15%.
A player that is runner up in the competition regardless of the score will have his/her handicap reduced by 10%.
A player that comes third in the competition regardless of the score will have his/her handicap reduced by 5%.
A player finishing last will have their handicap increased by 15%.
A player finishing 2nd last will have their handicap increased by 10%.
A player finishing 3rd last will have their handicap increased by 5%.
Players scoring less then 26 will have their handicap increase by 1
The score cards are assessed by the handicap secretary and an independent member to verify the correct handicap changes.
The computer programme will automatically make the changes and round the figure to a single figure.† Any figure with a number below 0.5 will be rounded down and any number above will be rounded up.

Top Six Scores
The top 6 scores are worked over the course of the season. The players best top 6 scores out of the total number of games that the player plays are added together† to give an overall score at the end of the season.
The league table is calculated by awarding players points for their finish within a competition. The top 8 players will be awarded points which, are calculated on card count back.
If the player wins a NTP or LD then 3 more points are added to the pointís total. The player with the highest accumulated score is shown as top of the leader board.
