Norman Green Trophy
Rules for the Norman Green Trophy

The Norman Green Trophy is an annual competition based on the scores of each individual player in our club duplicate sessions on the second Wednesday of each month.  Each player's best six scores in the competition year are added together and the trophy is awarded to the player with the highest aggregate total.  To be eligible to win the six qualifying scores must include scores with more than one partner and only scores achieved with club members are eligible.


Summary:

 

  • Annual competition for an individual winner in our duplicate pairs sessions on the second Wednesday of each month.
  • Our competition year now runs from the beginning of July until the end of the following June (previously September to August)
  • Based on cumulative percentage scores using each player's best six percentage scores (not handicapped). 
  • Must include scores with at least two partners (i.e. no more than five scores with any particular partner can be counted)
  • Only scores achieved with players who are club members are eligible. (We will, at our discretion, re-instate scores achieved with non-members who subsequently become members during the competition year)
  • There is no restriction on the number of different partners you may include in the qualifying six scores.

 

 

So as to qualify for the competition many players find it useful to play with one partner for half of the year and a different partner for the other half of the year but this is not a formal requirement and provided you play with at least two different club members during the year you will be eligible.
 
Under normal circumstances there should be 12 qualifying sessions, one on the second Wednesday of every month but circumstances may cause one or more sessions to be cancelled.  In the event that more than one session is cancelled the number of qualifying scores will be reduced as considered appropriate.
