Last Year’s results and pairings are here

Format: The club championship is a six-round Swiss tournament for club members (i.e. those who have paid the appropriate membership fee); One tournament, competing for two trophies: OPEN Championships and Under 130. The name(s) of the winner(s) will be engraved on the trophies; results will be sent for grading. Summer membership is £20.00 and you should be at least a Bronze member of the ECF to take part. See here for details

Dates: May 18, 25, June 8, 15, 22, 29 See calendar

Byes: A player may request ONE half-point bye with at least 24 hours notice. The bye can be in any round. However, byes in round 6 have to be agreed with the organiser before the start of the tournament, and cannot be rescinded.

Lateness/absence Text the organiser if you are going to be late. Please have consideration for other participants and the organiser, and notify the organiser directly of any absence whether planned or unplanned so that everyone gets a game.

Start times: The rounds will start at 7.30 pm; any player not having an opponent by 8pm will be repaired.

Time controls: You have 30 moves in one hour, then an extra 15 minutes to complete the game (quickplay finish); players who have had to be re-paired after 8.00 pm will have 1 hour each for the whole game.

Mobiles/recording: Turn off your mobile phones (or you may lose the game), and write your moves down, unless you have less than five minutes left. The arbiter may have his phone on silent.

Tie-break: In the event of a tie for first place, the sum of opponents’ scores will determine the winner. If that doesn’t break the tie, the honours will be shared.
