- Each
match will consist of a single game to 25 points (or 26 if 24-24 is
reached).
*Ash Amendment (2012/13)* - American scoring will be observed.
- Handicap-zeroing
will be done prior to each match to ensure each will have no more than 50
points (see below). If the zeroed scores have one player > +15 then the
scores are adjusted back to +15 (with a similar reduction made to the opponents
score).
*Finch Fudge (2012/13)* - When
the combined scores total to 25 (approximately halfway) the players may
leave the court for a 2 minute break.
*Scott Break (2013/13)*
Handicap-zeroing is where the handicaps of both players are adjusted as follows:
Tournament Handicap Player A -20 Player B +10
Without zeroing, Player A would need to win 44 points and Player B would need 14 points (a combination of 58) to get to 24-24 (the goal of a handicapped competition).
By
calculating the difference between the handicaps (in this case 30 points),
halving that (15 points), and putting each player that many points either side
of 0 we get the following (zeroed)
Tournament Match Handicap Handicap (zeroed) Player A -20 -15 Player B +10 +15
Now Player A
would need to win 39 points and Player B would need 9 points (a combination of
48) to get to 24-24 (the 49
