SCA GC Interclub 2019

The 2019 AC inter-club league consists of two all-play-all blocks. The winners of each block will play each other in a final on October 5th at The Meadows, unless otherwise agreed.

Each match will consist of two players from each team playing

  • a best-of-one* handicap doubles game, followed by
  • a best-of-three* 13 point handicap singles rubber each. Normally the lower handicap players will play each other, but captains may agree otherwise.

* The captains may agree in advance to play best-of three doubles and/or best-of-one singles, depending on time constraints. But in any event a match must consist of one doubles rubber and two singles rubbers, in order that a result is obtained.

Teams may be selected from a pool of players but no player may play for more than one team. All singles games count for the handicap card.

In the tables below 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 Meadows 1 v Auchincruive in Block A, Meadows 1 has choice of venue.

The winner of the league will be decided by
