Points Analysis 2019

When taking part in the Points competition, it is possible to get a misleading view of how well everyone is doing, what is the highest scoring discipline, which rink is better than the other etc.


So to bring a bit of clarity, the results table has been submitted to some further analysis, not to identify the poor performers but to give an overall idea of how well the club members played and what level of success was achieved with each discipline. Outwick was not played due to lack of time.


We played on sheets 3 and 4 and they were playing differently, most people doing their best on one not the other.


Some of the key attributes of the play are highlighted below.

This time striking was the top discipline followed by drawing and guarding, so we at least have the basics right which is a good sign.. Unfortunately, with three clubs playing together with 16 players taking part we only completed 5 and a half disciplines in the time available. The analysis above only included our own club members, 9 of whom took part together with Sally-Ann Christmas, who technically won the Ladies Trophy..


Analysis of 2012 , 2013 , 2015 , 2016 , 2017  and 2018 for comparison. There was no Points competition in 2014.
