National Team Challenge 2016 – results

The National Team Challenge (NTC) took place on Sunday 3 July at Guildford ice rink. Clubs fielding teams at this year’s event included Alexandra Palace, Basingstoke, Bracknell, Coventry, Gosport, Guildford,  Isle of Wight, and Slough.

At the NTC, clubs compete in eight out of a selection of 17 free skating, ice dance, synchro and artistic groups, plus a ninth, compulsory show category. Teams score points based on their finishing position in each group, and with eight teams competing this year, 1st place in each group scored 8 points, down to 8th place which scored 1 point. Choosing the right groups in which to compete can hugely change a team’s potential score and is part of the game of the event.
