Handicap Guidelines: Changes for the 2017 Season

The following important change has been made:


The AC Handicap Doubles experiments are to be discontinued and we will revert to working out the bisques to be given by adding the handicaps of the two players on each side together, then taking half the difference. This is the method described in Law 43(a) in the 6th Edition Laws of AC.


If you have collected any statistics of the original or trial systems and their outcomes, we would like to hear your findings. Please e-mail your observations to the Handicap Committee Chairman
