Competitions and Trainng

There are two competitions (winter and spring) each year run on Monday nights. There is also practice on Thursday nights. Our fees basically cover the cost of hall hire and incidentals for running the club eg balls, trophies etc

Divisions

We aim to have 3 Divisions each competition but this is dependent on the number of players who sign up. We use Ratings Central to gauge players standards and assign to a division. It is proving to be a good guide to player performance. Please bear this in mind if you are putting together a team. The aim of the match committee is to provide a balanced, competitive event where matches are generally close.

Entering a Competition

We generally like to create a balanced competition, hence we create the teams from the pool of players. Some players prefer to nominate a team, which is fine as long as it meets the above constraints. We will discuss if we see problems, too strong or too weak.

You need to decide if you wish to be in a 3 person or 4 person team. Remember, the season can run for 18 weeks and all players are committing to play each week. Entering in a 4 person team is cheaper (25% less) but requires the team to decide who misses out on a given night. Of course that player can filllin for another team.
