Handicap method for a club teams competition

At the last AGM our club decided to scrap the monthly (random teaming) teams competition and hold a single annual competition where people could form their own teams. The club is not large (80 or so members) and has a wide range of strengths (several NGS Aces and Kings, and the lowest rank is a 2). In order to make the competition fairer, so that less experienced pairs don't feel it's not worth entering if the strongest players all form into a two or three teams, we would like to apply a handicap system. This is easy enough for pairs events, simply using the NGS percentage or club-specific equivalent, but it's not obvious how best to do it at IMPs or VPs. Does anyone have any experience of doing anything similar, or any constructive suggestions to make, please?
