Rated Match Policy

On 15th March 2017, the UKBGF adopted its official results policy (PDF), which is designed to establish a standard for the quality of results posted to this site.

The UKBGF policy is supplemented by local policies, which give club managers the freedom to define local rules that work for the way their events are run.

The manager for Bognor data on this site is Peter Christmas.

The local policy for Bognor is as follows:

All completed league matches played in the all play all Bognor Backgammon Club will contribute to individual players’ UKBGF ratings. Players are also welcome to arrange friendly official rated matches of any agreed length provided both agree before starting and it is finished in accordance with UKBGF rules. A match in which penalty points have been awarded will be rated unless it becomes a walkover. Settled matches, unfinished matches, walkovers and friendlies will not be rated. The term ‘friendlies’ includes any match which is not part of the scheduled tournament programme, even if it is played during a club meeting unless both parties agree for it to be rated. Postponed or unfinished matches should be completed as soon as possible by arrangement between the players concerned and the result reported by both players to me Peter Christmas.

Our tournaments are recorded here, from club nights.
