The Club runs a qualifying tournament for the All England Handicap Championship which is open to all club members. Depending on the size of entry, the winning player(s) will qualify for the Area Finals, provisionally to be played over the weekend of 21-22 August at Surbiton. Winners from the Area Finals proceed to the National Finals, to be held over the weekend of 4-5 September at Sidmouth. These arrangements will however depend on whether the national competition still proceeds once the final impact of the Coronavirus lockdown on the national entry has become clearer.
Games will be 26pt games played off full bisque handicap to base 10 using current handicap (no maximum) on the day the game is played, and played untimed or to a time limit agreed between the players (minimum 3 hours; 3.5 hours if no agreement).

Games should be played by SATURDAY 24 JULY in order to qualify for possible Area Final entry.
Players are responsible for contacting their opponents to arrange games.
