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 Sussex League data on this site is Wayne Joseph.

The local policy for Sussex League is as follows:

The results of all Sussex Backgammon league (SBL) fixtures and tournaments are recorded and contribute to individual players’ UKBGF ratings by default. Any unfinished, forfeited and cancelled matches are not eligible.

Random pairings of any spare players at SBL meetings are eligible for inclusion in rated matches if both players agree to the match being rated prior to its commencement. For clear data separation of these ad-hoc matches from the League fixtures, these random pairings will be reported to the account of the 'Brighton Backgammon Club'.
