The Presidents Shield
This competition will take place on Thursday 20th June 2019. It is open to players of all grades and is a handicapped competition.
All members are pre-ranked and given an individual handicap figure by our club captains. This figure remains the same throughout the night. Partners for each game will be drawn and the handicaps combined. This is the score that you will start that particular game on. The first three game scores for each player will be recorded and the highest scoring four men and four women will become our semi-finalists.
The semi-finals are mixed doubles games. Partners are drawn once from the pool and play off against each other, again with the handicaps tallied as above. The winning pair from each semi-final will play off against each other in the finals.
The Penman Shield and the Clements Shield
The Clements Shield is for B-C grade players and will take place on Thursday 30th July.
The Penman Shield is for D-E grade players and will take place on Thursday 22nd August.
The basic format is a preliminary round consisting of at least three games per player, including at least one mixed doubles game. Scores are recorded for the first three games each player plays.
The four highest scoring men, and the four highest scoring women go through to the semi-finals. The semi-finals are mixed doubles games, with partners again drawn. The winners of each of the semi-finals go through to the finals. No re-draw is made for the finals.
