Cup Rules ONLY
You can ONLY play for ONE team.   If you play for a team above your registered team, you are ONLY eligible to play for THAT team.  So, if you subsequently play for your registered team IN THE SAME COMPETITION, any points you win will NOT count.


TOURNAMENT
Thirty-four players entered the traditional post Christmas handicap tournament at the Cheshunt club.  After coming through four rounds, Fred Burdett defeated Alex Morealle in three games to claim the title.  Jason Flaum partnered John Barnes to defeat youngest son Ben and Terry Smith in the doubles.  Thanks to all players for contributing to an enjoyable evening with special thanks to Jo Swain for controlling the evening, ably assisted by Vikki Flaum.  A nominal entry of 2 per person to contribute towards hall hire was requested on the night although this may have not been well publicised.  If anybody was not aware of this and hasn't paid, please pay a committee member when next passing. 

Divisional Cups
(Creasey Cup & Clifford Troll Trophy)

Divisional Cup matches are played before Christmas, with the finals being held at Allenburys Sports & Social Club on Mon 11/12/2017.   Any queries, please contact the match secretary.

Handicap Cup
(Hertford Builders Trophy)

As usual, the Handicap competition is played in the second half of the season with the finals on Mon 16/04/2018; venue: Allenburys Sports & Social Club.   This will avoid a clash for teams that get through to both the Handicap and Divisional cup finals.   It also gives the match secretary the first part of the season to see how everybody is getting on before setting the handicaps and waiting for the inevitable enquiries!

  The Handicap Cup will be divided into two pools.
  The team in each pool with the highest number will contest final.
  If points are level after the end of matches, head to head results will count.

The handicap cup will be played as a pool system.  Playing up is allowed, but once you have played for a team you cannot then play for another team.  i.e.  if you are registered for third team and your first match is for the second team, that is the only team you can play for in the competition, you cannot revert to your original team.  Any clarification, please contact the match secretary.
All handicaps are HERE on the website.  If anybody does not have a handicap, please contact the match secretary.
