Sunday 15th August 2021 10.00am - 5.30pm (top section close; lower sections will finish earlier)
U16 age groups or younger (school year 11 or below)
Entry fee £24, entrants must be ECF silver members or above
Capacity: 48
Sections: 6 x 8 player all-play-all, 7 rounds

All sections will be ECF rated and I hope to FIDE rate the top 1 or 2 sections. The bottom section will be suitable for beginners with little experience of tournament chess.

Prizes : Trophies of 1st/2nd/3rd in each section ; medals for those missing out on a trophy by tie-break; small chocolate prizes for all U8s
Time control: Top sections: 20 min + 10 sec, bottom sections 15 min + 10 second (may be adjusted)

Children must be under the age of 16 on 31st August 2020 (school year 11 or lower). Children aged 11 or over on the day of the tournament are strongly recommended to wear a face covering during play.

The overall capacity is 48 children. Children will be split by strength into all-play-all sections. For this purpose a mixture of the July 2020 OTB ECF grading list, current ECF online and OTB ratings, and current lichess rapid ratings will be used.

Please read the protocol for parents and players at

and also the overall tournament risk mitigation protocol
