Ladders 2017-2018

The scoring system of the ladder competitions for the 2017-2018 season is as follows:

  • For matchpointed pairs' ladders, the winner will be the player who has the highest average percentage score over their twenty best qualifying sessions.
  • For cross-IMPed pairs' ladders, the winner will be the player who has the highest IMP total over their twenty best qualifying sessions.
  • For non-expert matchpointed ladders, the winner will be the player who wins the most masterpoints over their twenty best qualifying sessions. Only players whose NGS on 1st August 2017 was 48% or below are eligible.

Follow the links below to see the current state of the ladders. Note that for most of these ladders, the results in the early stages will say No Results because no player yet has played the requisite twenty times. To see the running totals so far, select the "All" option.

Bi-monthly Handicaps

As the name suggests, these competitions run on a bi-monthly basis and are handicapped against players' computer-calculated ratings. 

These run

  • August - September
  • October - November
  • December - January
  • February - March
  • April - May
  • June - July

Current and completed competitions can be found in Pianola here.

Handicaps are now determined by each player's average percentage from Pianola, based on previous performances at the club.

Note that your relative score in a given session is based on both your and your partner's handicap value.

Players must play at least five times in the two-month period to qualify.

Tuesday evenings are excluded due to the system not currently supporting handicapping of IMP-scored competitions.
