The ECF have now published the January 2020 grading list. Please click on the ‘Grading’ tab above and then the link for the ECF grading database.
The new grades should be used to determine board order only and I expect all captains to have adopted them by 14/2/20. Between now and then I will accept results reported to me using either database, but not a mixture of both within a team.
It may interest members to know that the ECF intend to publish the new Elo grades alongside the existing ones, in anticipation of a switch to them, as well as monthly updates, in the near future. Please be aware that these grades are currently for interest only and will have no practical use for the remainder of this current season.
It is hoped to have more concrete information from the ECF, re the timescale for full implementation of four digit grades, in advance of this year’s AGM, so that members can make an informed decision on how they will be used within the Association.
