The ECF did a major reworking of the grading system in 2008. One of the consequences was that the "average" player leapt from around 115 to around 135. For players in the range 50 to 90, the addition could be as much as 50 points.Dewi Jones wrote: but not 45 points worth of more time to think
One of the things you could check is to look back at people you played in 2007 and see if they are still playing and what their grade now is. The ECF grading site has the archive of results from previous seasons, so it knows, even if you have discarded previous scoresheets and results.
You might just have become a better player. It does happen!
