CCC Shuttlecocks Policy
Members@CCC have to remember this:
Our players' charges are dependent on our club's expenses.
If we spend more on the use of shuttles, the cost will be passed on to the our players.
So, at the end of your game, if the shuttle is still good, place that good shuttle under the net, in the middle of the court.
The next lot of players should warm up with older shuttles from the tray.
When they are ready to start their game, they should then use that good shuttle that is placed under the net, in the middle of the court.
02-12-2007, 07:13 PM #2
Thought i would post this again since it got to do with chris spending time explaning things like "where to place the shuttle" + "system to schedule game":
Since lewlellyn is not here on friday nite, it must be hard for people for Chris to explain the new scoring system and tell people how to use chart to pick team and schedule games. SO it would be nice if we all could help him to do the explaining part to new comers to CCC.
If it's a lot of work now, imagine how hard it would be when the handicapped system comes in.
Well, the more time Chris has to stop+talk to everybody about things, the less time we play. Right?

How does our CCC Handicapped Games/Competition system workGreetings,
Many have asked me “How does your CCC Handicapped Games/Competition system work?”
Below is the answer.
====== start answer ======
Firstly, the competition is a perpetual one, continuing forever. And movement of handicapped points are by 2 points at a time.
Let me first explain for the Singles Game. (And we play under the WBF New Scoring System).
We first give to all new players, Staring Point(SP)= Zero.
So, when 2 players, (A & B, say) first enter the Competition, each will start with Staring Point(SP) of zero.
When A & B play each other, it's Love-all... 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 their game will be A(Love):B(8), ie A has to give B a 8-point start, 8 being -4 minus +4.
But we encourage our players to mix around and play against everyone.
So if A now plays C(let's say, C's SP=-8), their starting score for the game will be A(4):C(Love), ie C has to give A a 4-point start, 4 being -8 minus -4.
If A beats C, then A will have an attained SP=-6, and C's SP=-6.If they play each other again, their starting score for their game will be Love-all, ie no handicap given.
But if B wants to play C, their starting score for the game will be B(10):C(Love), ie C has to give B a 10-point start, 10 being -6 minus +4.
We set limits to the SP's at -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, the maximum handicap.
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 how true/honest a play that we get out of our stronger players. I usually encourage our stronger players not to muck about when they play at CCC. They should show respect to our weaker players by playing their best, with the exception of no aggressive smashes at weaker ladies.
But to administer the CCC Handicapped Games/Competition can be hard work. Wait till I get to explain the Doubles Games/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 by (-8 plus -4) divided by 2.And C and D will have an SP of +4, calculated by (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 until the end of the night. This is because of the recalculation that I have to do when their partnerships dissolve.
Let us say that for 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, remaining the same) and -6(for B).
Similarly, C&D having lost their game, their SP(combined) has gone down 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, remaining the same).
====== end answer ======
I hope that my answer/explanation above is clear.

Participation@CCC could be 'Exclusive' sooner than later
We posted this subect in another CCC thread.
But I thought I should post it here too.

I still remember when you suggested to me 'When we get to be overcrowded, only then we should start thinking of what to do'.
Well, I have thought about it and I thought that I should have a tentative plan... and now that you have brought up this subject matter, so here is IT: Players@CCC who just come to play and who has no feeling of concern for CCC will be the first to be asked to leave.
Just last night, 2 members informed us that because they will be likely to come less regularly, they have opted not to become members@ccc but just want to become casual visitors.
And this saddened me... because they thought that CCC will always be there for them when they wish to attend, but they did not think that CCC requires their participation if CCC is to continue to operate/exist.

Why CCC designed the CCC Handicapped Games ?
Here I responded to yschin's comments relating to CCC Badminton Club...
Originally Posted by yschin

Melbourne has too many 'Segregation Badminton Clubs', and I find that 'Segregation Badminton Clubs' are just NOT FRIENDLY ENOUGH.
And, as you have put it, in 'Segregation Badminton Clubs' "stronger players tend to play among themselves" and "weaker or beginners confine to a court all by themselves".
As you know, I am well known in Badminton in Melbourne because I visit many Badminton Clubs. In fact I have been members(not just casual visitors) of many of them. And I am still currently members of many clubs, even though I find that I frequent them seldom nowadays since I started CCC Badminton. I still like to be treated as part of their families and therefore I decide to continue to pay for my memberships.
Fortunately I am a skilled player. And they treat me with great respect and with tremendous friendliness.
But unfortunately, they are 'Segregation Badminton Clubs'.
So what's wrong with that, you may ask...
Well, the answer/reason is I find problem/discrimination against my lower skilled friends, who are non-members of the clubs concerned, but they want to come play with me just to pass time.
And you will be quite shocked to hear that I have been told "How can you bring this friend of yours when he/she is of such low skilled level of play?".
I find this quite upsetting.
Yes, you may say that those clubs have the right to choose whoever they like (based on skills) but I find it detrimental to the promotion of Badminton, a sport I dearly wish to promote.

It's like you and me, partnering in Doubles, asking Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong, if they can beat us if they give us 16 points start.
However, my suggestion that a player of a particular skill should form a Doubles Partnership with another player of about the same skill is because I think that it is very unfair when opponents keeping hitting shots to the weaker player and leave the stronger player out of the game.
The stronger player of the Partnership just doesn't enjoy it.

The 2 reasons why we categorise our players@cccOriginally Posted by chris@ccc
A member@ccc asked:
Why do we categorise our players of CCC@Waverley into 3 Sections for Friday Nights ?
Wouldn't it encourages segregation ?
Answer: There are 2 reasons why we categorise our players@ccc.
(1) Because we encourage players@ccc to form Doubles Partnerships with other players of about the same skill level...... players@ccc can see clearer now, with whom suitable partners are available for them.
For more explanation for why we encourage players of the same skill level to form partnerships, please read the second part of Post #12 of this thread.
Our CCC Handicapped Games are designed in the hope to create all games getting to 20-all when weaker partnerships play against stronger ones, without the latter mucking about with the former.
(2) Because we want to make it easier for team captains/organsiers to select/organise appropriate players, without bias/prejudice, when they are to form teams playing against other clubs in Friendly Matches, and/or, to form teams playing amongst ourselves in our CCC League Games.
It is pointless/meaningless to organise matches/games when their results are "too predictable".
We hope to get feedbacks from players@ccc on this matter.

CCC Badminton will continue to welcome new players until further notice
Below, is a message that was posted in our Friday thread on Monday 9-July-2007.
I thought I will post it here... for all our CCC members and visitors to be informed.
============ start message ============At the moment, we are still available for all players, members and visitors, for all our sessions.
Our CCC Badminton plays Social Badminton, 7:30pm-10:00pm, every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
In our other earlier posts, we stated that we would not exceed 8 Social Players per court.
We have 4 courts. So when our membership reached 32, we thought we better stop inviting more players.
However, we now learned that most our members do not play as often as we thought they would/should. And some of them only play on a particular night and not on others.
So...... it now stands that CCC Badminton will continue to welcome new players until further notice.
