SCA GC Interclub 2016

The 2016 GC interclub competition is being run as an all-play-all block:

  B E M1 M2 Rubbers Net games Net points Position
Balgreen   0 - 1  1 -3 -7 3
Edinburgh 2   - 1  3 3  +9 1
Meadows 1  - -   -        
Meadows 2 1 1 -    2 0  -2 2

Each match will consist of two players from each team playing a best-of-three 13 point singles rubber each, to handicap rules.   Normally the lower handicap players will play each other, but captains may agree otherwise.  Teams may be selected from a pool of players but no player may play for more than one team.  All games count for the handicap card.

In the table above the team named in the row will have choice of venue if there is a * in the cell, otherwise the choice will belong to the team named in the column.  For example for Balgreen v Edinburgh, Balgreen has choice of venue, and for Balgreen v Meadows 1, Meadows 1 has the choice.
