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 Holland Park data on this site is Tariq Siddiqi .

The local policy for Holland Park is as follows:

All completed tournament matches played according to the official random draw at HPBC meetings will contribute to individual players’ UKBGF ratings. Finalists are permitted to agree a reduction or increase in match length but this must be accurately reported. 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. Postponed or unfinished matches should be completed as soon as possible by arrangement between the players concerned and the result reported by both players.
