HOW HANDICAPS ARE DETERMINED
Your Local League Management reviews, calculates and updates players’ skill levels on a regular basis. Your skill level (SL) determines how many games you have to win in 8-Ball, or points you must earn in 9-Ball, in order to win your match. Calculating skill levels involves a number of factors and the application of specific mathematical formulas. The factors considered include, but are not limited to, the data on the weekly scoresheets, win/loss records, Tournament performance, feedback from Handicap Advisory Committees, and other considerations.
