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 Fulham data on this site is Nicole Coleman.

The local policy for Fulham is as follows:

The results of all Fulham Backgammon Club tournament matches are recorded and contribute to individual players’ UKBGF ratings by default. Any unfinished, forfeited and cancelled matches are not eligible.

Finalists are permitted to agree a reduction in match length but this must be accurately reported. The tournament director may also impose a reduction in match length.

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.
