Registration of players must be received by the Fixtures Secretary before players
are used in a match.
This must distinguish between new players (N) and ECF registered players. The Grading Officer will help on any problems with this.
The ECF Ref, Grade, Cat(egory) (other than Z or N) are taken from the current ECF grading list which is available online.
Category Z means that s/he is ECF registered but does not have an official ECF grade. The estimated grade could be an ECF calculation based on a small number of games or an estimate/overwrite by the club.
Category N means that s/he is not ECF registered and a grade has been estimated by the club (or the Grading Officer).
Category "?" means that the Category (N or Z only) is not yet clear.
For ECF registration a date of birth is required. This will not be published on the website.
Estimated grades for N and Z are for ‘current performance’ only and do not affect ECF gradings.
