The January ECF Rapidplay Grading List will be used to determine a player’s grade. For players who do not appear in the Rapidplay List, other lists may be used at the discretion of the organisers. Ungraded players must provide evidence for the organisers to assess their playing strength and any previous known grade must be declared.

Grading Information – It is a condition of entry that players agree to their grading information being published on the ECF website.


The organisers reserve the right to redistribute in whole or in part any prize won by a competitor who has won or shared a prize.


Ten minutes after the start of each round, new pairings may be made for each player whose opponent has not arrived and for any player otherwise having a full-point bye. Absent players will be defaulted after 10 minutes.
