This competition will involve 10 teams and will be a straight knockout competition.

All 3 Divisional Competitions will be played in a slightly different format to the KO Cup, whereby the match winner will be the team with the most points after all 9 singles matches, played to 56 points up, are completed.

In the event of a tie, the team with the higher number of outright single game victories will progress.


1.       Matches will be between teams of three players, each playing one game up to 56 points against each member of the opposing team.

2.       A game is deemed to be complete when either player has scored 56 points. This means that a player can win 56-55.

3.       All games should start with the score at each player’s individual respective handicap e.g. Player A’s handicap is 23 and Player B’s handicap is 36 so if Player A serves first the scoring starts at 23 - 36.

4.       Service will change after each five points scored. 

The number of serves to be allocated at the start of the match is worked out as follows:-

Player A has a handicap of 6 and Player B has a handicap of 25, add these handicaps together to make 31. Therefore the next change of serve would be at 35 points, so four serves would be allocated to the person serving first. Once these have been completed, you carry on with five serves per person.

5.      Calculation for working out when to change ends for up to 56 Handicap Cup Matches :

Player A handicap is 6 and Player B Handicap is 25.

Player A would change ends at 31. Calculation is 56 – 6 = 50 / 2 = 25 + 6 = 31

Player B would change ends at 40. Calculation is 56 – 25 = 31 / 2 = 15.5 + 25 = 40.5, rounded down to 40

Individual handicaps will be broadly similar to those allocated last season (if available) but some minor adjustments may be made before or during the competition to reflect performance for the season to date and/or results.
