Chess England is ONLINE!


We are approaching 170 members online and had a very successful one-day event this Sunday with up to 60 people playing in each round (= "Arena" on Lichess).  The idea is that you can join the Chess England Club for free, and for a small donation you can take part in one of the many events online.  I am looking for some feedback on the events, ideas for improvement and new tournaments that I can run!  Thanks to Lichess for hosting us and making this all possible.

I am also doing some coaching online, for individuals and for groups, including groups for juniors.  Get in touch if you are interested.  There is a Chess England WhatsApp Group.

Here is a list of FIDE registered tournaments in England. There will be a separate entry for each section of each event (e.g. Golders Green Rapidplay = 4 sections, 4 registrations). If you see any of mine missing, do let me know! 

Only games where at least one of the players has a published standard FIDE rating will be rated, and included in the rating calculations of the unrated player. Where both players are rated, the game will affect both players and will be included in the calculations for both players.
