Chess SA Online Regulations - Regulations for rating online chess tournaments
The Covid-19 outbreak has had a serious impact on all sport activities in the world and chess is no exception. It is not only the game that has been suffering, but the entire chess eco system is taking a beating. Coaches and professional players have no income. Regions, Provinces and Chess SA has also not escaped this lack of opportunity to generate income. Most importantly, our players are not able to practice and improve their game.
The chess eco system cannot function effectively without games being rated. To get the Chess SA eco system going again, Chess SA has assembled a committee to investigate the possibility of including online chess games in the Chess SA Rating system and this document is the result of the investigation.
