Brief Competition Details

BRIEF COMPETITION DETAILS - 2020

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
