The original Organisers' Handbook has had a complete revision as of May 2010 and has now been divided into two separate documents:
This new format allows for both online browsing and offline downloading and printing.
These handbooks are very useful documents outlining starting a club, publicity, teaching beginners, planning and running tournaments, including much technical detail about the McMahon tournament system and good practice for using a computer to run the draw.
We gratefully acknowledge the preparation of this edition by Nick Wedd, updating the previous edition by Edwin Brady. Thanks are due to Edwin Brady, Tony Atkins, Ian Davis, Geoff Kaniuk, Jenny Radcliffe, Paul Smith, Nick Wedd and Willemien for their contributions and suggestions, and the many contributions (both direct and indirect!) from the gotalk mailing list.
The PDF version of the previous edition of the Organisers’ Handbook is still available.
