Club Championship

Colin Roberts, our Club Championship organiser, is keen to start the next Club Championship at the end of this month in the hope that it will run better than last year. As before, there will be two groups divided to give the best fit to the grading range of the players involved; typically, this results in an open section and an under 120 or 125 division, but this can vary. 

If you would like to take part (probable maximum number of games to play between now and May is five or six, minimum number probably two or three; games can be played at Club nights or elsewhere) please e-mail Colin to this effect no later than October 31st. E-mail, too, if you have any questions about the competition.

Colin’s email address can be found on the contacts page.

    Club Championship – Entry Closes This Week

    Colin Roberts, the organiser of our internal “Club Championship” has asked me to remind you that if you want to be involved this season, you need to let him know. If you haven’t done so already, you can email via the contacts page. He’s hoping to finalise the draw soon, and so would like to hear from you this week (before Saturday 3rd November). This gives you a few extra days, as he’d originally said the end of October.

    Competition Format

    By way of reminder, the likely format will be to run two parallel competitions, an “Open Section” and a “Minor Section” (typically under 120 or 125 grade). The two competitions have previously operated on a “group” basis, with one or more players from each group going through to the next stage, which has been either an immediate final or a further all-play-all group. This is merely a guide, as Colin is free to determine the exact format depending on the number of entries he receives.

    Games can either be played at the club or at any venue agreed by both parties. Whatever the venue, players must, of course, adhere to the rules (I note especially the use of clocks, the correct time controls, and the recording of moves). The games are played according to our normal match rules and count towards your ECF grading.
