The SCCA grading list has been published during the first quarter of each calendar year, then supplemented by updates from the ICCF rating system every March and September. The 2008 list was the last to calculate SCCA grades. From 2009, all grades are calculated on the ICCF system, and SCCA domestic events are administered on the ICCF webserver to allow results to be automatically fed into the ICCF system. From 2009, the ICCF grading list has been published quarterly.

Grading List 2016

January 2017 Notes

The first ICCF grading list of 2017 is published and new grades are based on 3 months’ results reported between 1 September and 30 November 2016. The grades will apply to internationally graded games starting between 1 January and 31 March 2017.

There was one addition to this list – Derek Ross entered at 1886 (38 games). Movement across the grading bands featured Martin Hardwick regaining 1300+; and Alastair Dawson regaining 2100+ for the first time since 2013.

Two new games centurions were recorded – Carlos Almarza-Mato passed the 1200 games mark and Eoin Campbell reached 500+.

Highest recorded games during this quarter were Carlos Almarza-Mato (98), Eoin Campbell (58), Martin Hardwick (52), Andrew Macmillen (48), Raymond Burridge (43), and David Cumming (31).

General Notes

You need to complete 12 ICCF-eligible games to obtain a provisional rating (* below). Provisional ratings apply until 30 games have been processed. Note that correspondence grades are often substantially higher than over-the-board grades. Please get in touch with me at: grader if you have any queries.
