|CLUB LADDER COMPETITIONS RE-VAMPED
For 2013, the club ladder competitions have been revised. All friendly games, both handicap and level, played on a full lawn throughout the season can be played as ladder games provided both players agree before the games are played. The games can be of any format or length. The ladder games will be put on Handicap Cards and entered on the results sheet pinned to the Notice Board. The new Monday competition games will all be ladder games. 14 point single games on a large lawn in the Wednesday competition can also be included if both players agree. No other competitive games can be included. The Handicap ladder table will be based on the percentage wins, while the Level ladder will use a form of the grading system.
