The Ellie McAusland Handicap Trophy 2016

As we approach the end of the season I’m delighted to advise you that Uppingham Hill Badminton Club will running our annual handicap tournament for the 4th year on Tuesday 26th April, our final night of the season. Last year we had in excess of 20 players, using all courts with Pam Giblin and John Husk coming up trumps as eventual winners.  The aim of the event is about enjoyment and to try and achieve as big a turnout as possible on our final night of the season.
For those new (or with short memories) everyone who enters gets a handicap with the view to leveling all players regardless of ability. The range last year was from -3 to +12 which in a 1 off game to 21 gives everyone a chance. We will aim for groups of 4 again so that everyone has the opportunity to play 3 games with a different partner each game, with the group winner and runner up qualifying for the knock-out phase. Once we reach this stage then pairs will be established right through to the final.
We are looking to repeat the good fun had from the last 3 years which will hopefully result in 2 new winners, or can Pam and John defend their title ? The handicapping and draw will be completed by 20th April, so could we please have all entrants by the club night of Tuesday 19th April AT THE LATEST. Please register your interest by completing the sheet on the notice board at club or emailing Mike Webster if you will not be at club over the two weeks.
Good luck and look forward to a healthy entry list
