BRIEF COMPETITION DETAILS - 2019

This sheet describes briefly the club’s internal competitions which run through the season. Some block competitions with large entries will feature both the first and second-placed players going through to quarter / semi-finals.

Victor Ludorum – points will be accumulated for all competition games played (3 points for winner, 1 point for loser) to give a GC and an AC winner and an overall Victor Ludorum. It is hoped that this will encourage members to play what may otherwise be “dead rubbers” in block competitions.

The Competition Entry Form is available for download here.
