You should strive to improve your skill and aim to play at higher level. One of the way to do so is to play with better players in a competition. If you play only socially with a better player, he will always lower his standard to suit you. But in competition, he will play his best. So, next time you go to join a competition, if no grade D, then join grade C. The worst you can get is 10 times more body/head smashed.

Aggregating the handicaps at the start of each night is straightforward, how do you calculate the divvy up bit at the end?
Calculated @start (+2) = [(+4)+(0)] divided by 2.
Match 11 moved to (+6) Won against Angelo-Y & Joseph-S.
Hope that solve the confusion.

CCC Handicapped Competition: Doubles PairOriginally Posted by DoublesPlease
Firstly, I have to stress that players should choose partners of equal strength/skill. Otherwise their matches would not/could not be as enjoyable. Opponents will just play the weaker player and leave the stronger player out of the game.
I have explained to Loh how our CCC Handicapped Competition works.
Below, you will find the explanation;
====== start explanation ======
Firstly, the competition is a perpectual one, continuing forever. And movement of handicapped points are by 2 at a time.
Let me first explain for the Singles Competition. And we play under the NSS.When 2 players, (A & B, say) first enter the Competition, they start with Staring Point(SP) of zero.
So, when A & B play each other, it's Love-all, since we give to all new players, SP=zero. So their game is like a normal game.
If A beats B, then A will have an attained SP=-2, and B's SP=+2.If they play each other again, their starting score for their game will be A(Love):B(4), ie A has to give B a 4 point start, 4 being -2 minus +2.
If A beats B again, then A will have an attained SP=-4, and B's SP=+4.And if they play each other again, their starting score for the game will be A(Love):B(8), ie A has to give B a 8 point start, 8 being -4 minus +4.
So if A now plays Kevin(Kevin's SP=-8), their starting score for the game will be A(4):Kevin(Love), ie Kevin has to give A a 4 point start, 4 being -8 minus -4.
If A beats Kevin, then A will have an attained SP=-6, and Kevin's SP=-6.If they play each other again, their starting score for their game will be Love-all, ie no handicap given.
But now B wants to play Kevin, so their starting score for the game will be B(10):Kevin(Love), ie Kevin has to give B a 10 point start, 10 being -6 minus +4.
We set limits to the SP, which are -8 and +8. So when 2 players, X & Y, X with SP=-8 and Y with SP=+8, play each other, their starting score for their game will be X(Love):Y(16), ie X has to give Y a 16 point start, 16 being -8 minus +8.
I devised this system because I do not want our stronger players to muck about with our weaker players.
And this system will allow a more challenging game for the stronger player, to keep his/her interest up.
To the weaker players, they should find that the system will give them an indication on their progress in Badminton over the months/years of play. But this is subject to the true/honest play that we get out of our stronger players. I usually discourage stronger players to muck about when they play at CCC. They should show respect to weaker players by playing their best, with the exception of no aggressive smashes at weaker ladies.
But to administer the CCC Handicapped Competition can be hard work. Wait till I get to explain the Doubles Competition, as I will do now.
Let me first explain that the SP is like an identifying number for each player. And let us look at 4 players with different SP's, say A(-8), B(-4), C(0) and D(+8).
So if A partners B, their SP will be -6, calculated from (-8 plus -4) divided by 2.
And C and D will have an SP of +4, calculated from (0 plus +8) divided by 2.
So if they play each other, their starting score for the game will be A&B(Love):C&D(10), ie A&B have to give C&D a 10 point start, 10 being -6 minus +4.
And if team A&B wins, then A&B will have an attained SP=-8, and C&D's SP=+6.
And I hope that they will continue to play as fixed pairs to the end of the night. This is because of the recalculation that I have to do when their partnerships dissolve.
Let us say that the game above, A&B beating C&D, was the last game of the night. So how do I recalculate their individual SP's before the start of our next session?... I will explain below;
Firstly, let me remind you of their original SP's, A(-8), B(-4), C(0) and D(+8).Because A&B won their game, their SP(combined) has improved from -6 to -8. So, A and B should move to -10 and -6 respectively. But, of course you remember that we have set a limit of -8, so their final SP's will be -8(for A) and -6(for B).
Similarly, C&D having lost their game, their SP(combined) has gone from +4 to +6. So, C and D should move down to +2 and +10 respectively. But, again you remember that we have set a limit of +8, so their final SP's will be +2(for C) and +8(for D).
====== end explanation ======
So, going back to Post#173.
hkhung(+4) partnered Yong-Y(0), giving a partnership(+2).
At the end of the session, their partnership finished from (+2) to (+6), that is their partnership Handicapped Score has moved down by 4 points... so hkhung should move down by 4 points, from (+4) to (+8), and Yong-Y should move down by 4 points too, from (0) to (+4).
That is... each of them moved down by 4 points, that is the MAIN MOVEMENT.
Hope you can figure this out...

Hafiz trains at Bukit Jalil in preparation for Asiad Badminton 2006
Here is an article about Hafiz's training for Asiad Badminton 2006.
====== start article ======
The Star Online
Hafiz trains at Bukit Jalil in preparation for Asiad badminton
PETALING JAYA: Men singles shuttler Mohd Hafiz Hashim will get off to a fresh start in his preparation for the Asian Games after the Hari Raya celebration.
The 24-year-old Hafiz has decided to stay at Bukit Jalil - together with the other members of the Asiad team, who are gearing up for the Games, which will be held in Doha from Dec 1-15.
By staying in, he will also train on a regular basis with the national team.
The other men singles in the fray are Lee Chong Wei, Kuan Beng Hong and his elder brother Roslin.
Previously, the requirement for Hafiz was to train twice (two sessions) with the national players. But sometimes, the arrangement varied depending on coach Misbun Sidek's training programme.
Hafiz, who checked into the centralized camp in Bukit Jalil on Friday, said the decision to move base would help him to stay more focused in his preparation for his second Asiad.
"All the facilities - training centre, gymnasium and medical center - are in Bukit Jalil. I aim to improve my physical condition. I do not have to worry about food too. For next one month, I plan to be more focused," said Hafiz.
"But whenever required, I will train at Kelana Jaya (the training centre of the Nusa Mahsuri players). But certainly, there will be more sparring sessions with the national team - right up to the Asiad," he said.
After losing to Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia in the quarter-finals at his debut Asian Games in Busan Games four years ago, Hafiz is determined to win a medal.
