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 BackgammonAyr data on this site is Jules Smith.

The local policy for BackgammonAyr is as follows:

This policy, dated 6th December 2019, outlines how this club will manage data pertaining to players’ ratings on the UKBGF website.

Eligible matches:

  • All matches played as part of the 6-monthly BackgammonAyr League competition.
  • All matches played as part of a designated Rated Tournament played at the Club. These will typically be 3pt, 5pt, or 7pt double-elimination knock-outs, but format may change dependent on number of players attending/entering. Rated tournaments will be advertised in advance on the groups’ website and Facebook page. All such competitions will feature random pairings of players.

Ineligible matches: All 1pt matches, friendlies, unscheduled matches, chouettes, Nackgammon, Tric Trac and non-fixtures (forfeits, byes, walk-overs etc.).

Data will be entered into the UKBGF system by the club leader or his deputy.
