National Grading Scheme

The EBU has launched the National Grading Scheme. Members will notice from their own membership page on the EBU website a new tab on the righthand side, NGSinfo. Clicking on this will bring up a page showing your grade, and the grades of your regular playing partners. Very briefly, your grade is based on your individual performances since P2P came in. The grade will be a playing card, running from a 2 ( lowest) to an Ace. In fact, the Ace grade is further subdivided into the 4 suits.
