Gradings List for our Registered Members

The link below shows the August 2021 ECF (English Chess Federation) grades for club members. Grades are calculated after each game a player completes in a league match, and from results of games in ECF-registered chess congresses/competitions.

The calculation is as follows:  take your opponent's grade and add 50 to it if you won, or substract 50 points from it if you lost (if the game was drawn, use your opponent's grade).  However, those calculations assume that your opponent's grade is never more than 40 points above, or below, your grade; so if your grade is only 90 and your opponent's is 150, take his grade to be 130 (90+40) in the calculation of  your grade after the game. Similarly, if your grade is 150 and your opponent's 90, take his as 110 (150-40). After this adjustment add 50 to it if you won, or substract 50 points from it if you lost (if the game was drawn, use your opponent's grade). Your cumulative grade is then the average of all such calculations (minimum of 9 games).

Please note that all the grades of active players are now updated by the English Chess Federation twice annually, in August and January.
