National Hanidcap Pairs
Due to covid 19, we have made the decision to reschedule the National Handicap Pairs. The event will now take place online on 4th October, the competition format will remain the same.
The special thing about this competition is that the results will be handicapped, with each pairs' score reduced by the average of their NGS grades, so everyone will have a chance of winning simply by playing better than usual.
