Summer Handicap Pairs
Summer Handicap Pairs

Our summer handicapped pairs starts on the first Tuesday afternoon in May and runs until the last Tuesday Afternoon in October. That's just over twenty sessions. If you and your partner are both members of Rugby Village BC, and you both have EBU National Grades, you will automatically be entered into this competition when you play on a Tuesday Afternoon. Your pair needs to play at least ten times to have a qualifying result. Each time you play, your result will be adjusted using your average current EBU National Grade. Your best ten results will count. If you play an eleventh time and your result is worse than all you have already recorded, the current session result is discarded. If your result is an improvement on the worst result you already have, the new result is included and the old worst one is discarded. So each time you play you can improve your current standing. The pair with the best ten results over the summer will have their names engraved on the trophy. So come along and start scoring.
