The WESPA Ratings Officer updates the ratings file
using the latest results of approved tournaments. Rankings are given to those who have played in the past two years and have reached 50 games in WESPA-rated tournaments. Players with more than seven years of inactivity will retain their previous rating but will be considered provisional until they have reached 50 games in WESPA-rated tournaments after their return.
We have divided the information on this page into two categories, depending on what information you are seeking. Simply click on the wording in the button to expand for more information in each category. You can collapse it by clicking on the button again.
The WESPA Ratings System is known as Aardvark and has been in operation in its current form from 28 May 2012. You can find historical tournament results as well as ratings information regarding specific players.
