Convenor: Mary Warren - 9200160

The following Competitions will be played:-


12 Rounds, 8 to qualify. All rounds played with the same partner. If more than 8 Rounds are played all such rounds will be counted. There are Senior and Junior competitions.


10 Rounds, 7 to qualify, all rounds played with the same partner, who must be a partner other than their regular partner for Rimu Pairs.  If more than 7 rounds are played all such rounds will be counted. As with Rimu there are Senior and Junior Competitions


7 Rounds, 5 to qualify.  Each Round to be played with a different partner. If more than 5 Rounds are played all will count except when more than one has been played with the same partner and then only the first such Round will count.  If a pair consists of a Senior and Junior player, the pair will be regarded as a Senior pair, consequently the score will not count towards the Junior partner's qualification. 


6 ROUNDS. 4 to qualify, each round with a different partner who must nobe the Rimu or Rata Pairs partner.  If more than 1 round is played with the same partner, only the first such round will be counted.  If more than 4 qualifying rounds are played all will be counted. 

The competition is designed to provide an even playing field for all members by using a handicapping system.  The aim is to provide the same opportunity to weaker and stronger players, thus promoting more incentive to the less experienced.  Senior and junior players are strongly encouraged to pair up for this competition as was originally planned.

An individual's handicap will be set based on all club competition results from the previous year.  A pair's handicap will be the average of the handicap assigned to the 2 individual players (eg a pair will +2 and -7 handicaps will have a handicap of -2.5 (+2 -7= -5 divided by 2=2.5).  Handicaps will be displayed on the noticeboard.


To qualify, a player must qualify in each of these competitions:- Rimu Pairs, Rata Pairs and Individual. To determine the Overall Individual winner the final percentages in these three Competitions are averaged. A Junior, playing with a Senior in either the Rata or Rimu Pairs competitions will be regarded as a Senior in the Overall Individual Competition.


Such matches are played on 2 or 3 consecutive Club days. To qualify, a player must play all days of a match with the same partner, who must not be their Rimu or Rata Pairs partner. However, one substitute is allowed for each match.  Double substitution is not permitted (ie a player who is already playing or who has played as a substitute in the competition cannot be a substitute for another pair).  Substitute partners must be declared on the table slip before play starts each day.


These are Non-Competition days when there are no partnership requirements and members may play with whomever they wish. Open days which fall on Public Holidays are subject to sufficient numbers of players signifying an intention to play.
