Captain's Bulletin

Captains' Newsletter - May 2019

We are  having the rearranged Champion of Champions competition next week on Bank Holiday Monday (May 27) starting at 1.30.  There are twelve players all of whom either won a cup in club competition last season or received a cup for having the highest average in the team they played in. It will be a knock out competition (with handicap) culminating in a grand final, hopefully at about 4.00pm.  Please come along and watch, help score and enjoy a cup of tea and cake.  Everyone is welcome. 

The next friendly is against Tideswell  on Saturday June 1 at Tideswell.  There is a list up in the clubhouse to sign up if you are interested in going to this lovely Peak District green.

Thanks to everyone who signed up to play in the club handicap competitions.  The draw has now been made, and handicaps allocated, and the sheets will be up in the clubhouse this week. 

Examples of working out the handicap when playing:

Singles: Tom (handicap 22) plays Shirley (handicap 25).  The difference is 3 (25-22) therefore Tom starts with 3 points on his card and the winner is the first to 21.

Doubles: Jack and Susan (handicap 21 and 24 (total 45))  play  Mary and Fred (handicap 22 and 26  (total 48)).  The difference is 3 (48-45) halve this and round up (not down).  Half of 3 is 1.5, round up = 2.  Therefore Jack and Susan start with 2 points on their card and the winners are the first to 21. 

 The dates for each round to be played are:

  • Round One by June 6

  • Quarter Final by June 16

  • Semi Final by June 27

Finals day is Sunday June 30 and if you have taken part in the competition it would be great if you could come along and support on that day.

 Well done to the Ledingham Cup team who were beaten in the second round by Bradway A but put up a good fight against  mostly county players.  Thanks to all of you.

 Anne  has now ordered the showerproof reversible jackets and these should arrive within two weeks.  You will need to pay Anne for these please. 

Best Wishes,

As always general supporters are welcome at any Hallam Grange match. It is lovely to see people there.

   For all results see the Results Pages here.



    An ongoing reminder that in line with our do's and don'ts in the updated handbook, [and hard copies are in the pavilion], please continue to walk round the green in all matches rather than crossing the line of play. We all forget at times and most other teams have scant regard for it, but it is the Hallam Grange way.
