Association Croquet Handicaps & Rankings
How the Handicapping System works
Competitive singles games only
If you win, you score index points.
If you lose, your lose index points.
How many points you score or lose is determined by your achievement.
In handicap-play you score or lose 10 points every time, but in level-play the points vary.
If you beat a player who has a lower handicap that you, 'well done' - you score more points!
If you lose to a higher handicapped player than you, 'oh dear'
- you lose more points!
Your handicap is determined by your current index score and changes when you pass through the trigger point of the next handicap mark (either up or down).
