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 St Albans data on this site is Chris Purchase.

The local policy for St Albans is as follows:

St Albans’ weekly meet comprises chouettes, two match-play tournaments, Main and Consolation, and the occasional “private” match.

Only matches that are played as part of one of the two tournaments are eligible for entry into the UKBGF database. The Main is open to all-comers. The Consolation is open to those who are knocked out of the Main, or who arrive late. Buy-backs are allowed in the Consolation only.

The annual St Albans Open comprises a round-robin day, followed by various knock-out flights. All matches that are part of the Open are eligible for entry into the UKBGF database.
