Handicaps Explained

This is the way Queenstown Bridge Club Members' Handicaps are calculated:

Handicaps are calculated by taking 50 - (the player's average score over the previous year)  X  1.

E.g.  Jo Bloggs has an average over the last year  (excluding Championship Pairs and Robinson Graded Pairs) of 48%

         So:  50 - 48 = +2

          Handicaps are updated at the end of each series.
