The IOMSRA Handicap Cup competition is for teams in the B and C leagues. Each team is given a Handicap which is derived from the teams results over the course of the season. Additional points are given to C league teams to make them competitive against the B league teams. The Handicaps for the teams are shown below, if you want to know how these were derived just contact me and I will send you the Excel Spreadsheet that I used to derive them.
The Cup matches will be scored like the league matches so the team score will be a determined by adding the scores of the best 3 games of each player together for the team. The scores for each team member will then be added together to give a Total Points scored for the Team. Please note the will be ‘NO BONUS’ points added to the winning team, but the difference between the teams handicap values will be added to one of the teams instead.
Please note that a player will NOT be cup tied, he can play for both his B and C league teams in the cup unless they play each other of course. If they do he must select 1 of the teams to represent.
I have yet to do the draw but the format of the draw which includes the dates of matches is shown below –
