Rated Match Policy

On 15th March 2017, the UKBGF Online adopted its official results policy PDF, which is designed to establish a standard for the quality of results posted to this site.

The UKBGF Online 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 Birmingham data on this site is Mike Wood.

The local policy for Birmingham is as follows:

The Birmingham Backgammon Club meets each Monday evening. The format for the evening is either a round-robin tournament or a series of 8 player knockout tournaments, where buy-back is possible. The results for these events are all recorded onto the UKBGF ratings system by Richard Carter. These are the only Monday evening matches eligible.  A monthly knockout tournament also occurs on a Tuesday evening.

The Birmingham Backgammon Club runs an annual tournament in May each year. All matches from this tournament are recorded onto the UKBGF ratings system. Kevin Jones kindly does this on our behalf.

No matches, other than those described above, find their way onto the ratings system.
