Groningen uses a simple ladder system, designed by Herman Hiddema.

All games in the ladder are played with full handicap. If a player wins, he earns a plus (+), if he loses he gets a minus (-). The pluses and minuses cancel out. Promotions and demotions are given when a player has reached a certain number of pluses or minuses.

The number of pluses or minuses to change rank is:

rank range +/- needed
21+ kyu 1 (every game changes the rank).
11-20 kyu 2
6-10 kyu 3
1-5 kyu 4
dan players 4 + their current dan rank

In addition, players can request a new rank based on e.g. tournament performance.

Once per year, the ladder is reset, which is based on anchoring the dan players to their official rank.
