The Entry Form for both Association and Golf competitions can be downloaded here.

The Finals Weekend will be on 29 / 30 September so please bear this in mind if you enter for any of the
Internal Competitions. In exceptional circumstances a final may be played before Finals Weekend with
 the agreement of the Competitions Secretary and all players concerned.
Your Entry Form, with the total entry fee, must be received by Liz Farrow by 29 March 2018.
It may be posted to the club, handed personally to the club secretary or left in the Competition Entry Box’ on the notice board at the Club. No entries will be accepted after this date. The draw for each competition will be displayed by 12 April.

Full details of each competition will be posted on the relevant notice boards alongside the draws. If in doubt, ask either myself or another experienced competition player for advice. A brief summary of all the competitions is attached.

Knock-out format   We have had problems in past years with knock-out competitions falling behind schedule because of non-observance of play-by dates. The basic rule is that the upper named player in each round (the ‘challenger’) is responsible for taking the initiative in arranging the match by offering a choice of dates and reasonable notice. Please be aware of play-by-dates and arrange matches in good time. The Competitions Secretary has stated he will not be as lenient as sometimes has been the case in the past.

Block format  Each block will be assigned a play-by date for completion of all matches in that block.. Any matches remaining unplayed will be scored 0 for  both sides. Please do not leave matches to the last few days.   
If a player (or pair) withdraws from a competition having already played one or more matches, all the scores for
those matches, for both sides, will be discounted. However the results will count towards the new Victor Ludorum (see below).

This will be played on a single day, Tuesday 5 June, with format according to entry.

NEW FOR 2018
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.
