Entries are now invited for the 2018 County individual tournaments which will once again be held at the Wigston club throughout the summer.

The deadline for entries is April 20th 2018.

The full details of the County Championships 2018 can be found here.

For more information please contact Andy Morley, the controller, by email here.

The time control for all events will be 80 minutes for the whole game plus a 10 second per move increment throughout.

The 2018 County Individual Tournaments will take place at Wigston Chess Club. There are 4 sections:

* The Championship. This will be 6 rounds, open to all

* The Challengers. This will be 5 rounds, open to players graded below 160

* The Major. This will be 5 rounds and is open to players graded below 140

* The Minor. This will be 5 rounds and is open to players graded below 120

The grades used are the JANUARY 2018 ECF grades, not the ones quoted in the 2017/18 LRCA League Handbook.

The Championship dates are:

1. Round 1 10th May 2018

2. Round 2 7th June 2018

3. Round 3 5th July 2018

4. Round 4 2nd August 2018

5. Round 5 30th August 2018

6. Round 6 20th September 2017 (NB 3 weeks after round 5)

2. Round 2 7th June 2018

3. Round 3 5th July 2018

4. Round 4 2nd August 2018

3. Round 3 12th July 2018

4. Round 4 9th August 2018

5. Round 5 6th September 2018

It is expected that all games will be played on the scheduled dates. This will enable the draw for the next round to be made promptly. Recognising that the tournament is played during the holiday season, there will inevitably be some dates which players cannot make, in which case every effort should be made to play the match BEFORE the scheduled date.
