Unregistered Players

Unregistered players wishing to play in the league must play of "scratch" until they are registered, unless they declare a lower handicap (e.g., Minus 10).

Former registered players must declare and play off their previous handicap.

All new players must have a suggested handicap proposed by an existing member of the Calder Valley League.

A default handicap of +15 may be given if the ability of the new player is unknown.

Handicap Rules

Handicaps are incremented in single digits (+/- 1)

  • If a player wins, their handicap has a -1 applied to it.
  • If a player loses, their handicap has a +1 applied to it.
  • If the win/lost margin is >= 30 points, an additional +/-1 is applied.

The minimum handicap is (Minus 70) and the maximum handicap is +35.

Handicap Adjustments

All handicap adjustments will be presented for approval at each league meeting.

Any players who have played any game(s) since the last review, their handicap will be changed.

Any objections can only be raised during the appropriate league meeting to be discussed and approved by the League.

No adjustments will be made within the last 4 game weeks of the season, unless the Handicap Committee deems an adjustment is required.

End of season handicap adjustments will be applied to the start of the following season.

Fixture Results

All fixture results must be submitted online within 36hrs of the fixture taking place. This means that if a match is played on a Monday night, the home team have until Wednesday midday to submit the result.

Failure to submit the results within the allocated time will now start to incur points deduction.


Each team is now responsible for their own collections.

Home teams do not need to collect the away team's collections after each match.
