WESPA's Ratings Committee monitors and evaluates the effectiveness of different ratings systems, to achieve the fairest possible rating of all international players.
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 international WESPA-rated tournaments.
We have divided the information on this page into two categories. 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.
