All matches are to be played on handicap and players may challenge
anyone up to four places above them on the ladder.

If the lower player wins then their name is placed above their
opponent’s and all players in between are moved down one place.

This means that members who do not play will gradually move down the ladder.

Association Ladder games are 26-points each
with a limit of 3 hours or less by agreement.

Golf Ladder games are 13-points each with a 50-minute limit.
