The rules, including the rating handicap system, can be found here (https://www.dorsetchess.co.uk/ko-handicap/) and via the main menu under B&DC League.

A Match Scoresheet can be found here.

The latest live monthly ratings will be used which will include games played up to the end of the previous month. So, as an example, if a cup match was played in September, it is the fixed September 2024 rating that will count (and games played in September 2024 will not count).
