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 ThameGammon data on this site is Cheryl Oliver.

The local policy for ThameGammon is as follows:

All completed matches played as part of a randomly-drawn Swiss or Round Robin tournament at ThameGammon meetings will contribute to individual players’ UKBGF ratings.

Finalists are permitted to agree a reduction 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.

Friendlies, walkovers, settled and unfinished matches 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 ThameGammon event.
