Golders Green Rapidplay, 12th September - Crosstables available

The full results for the 12th September event at Golders Green are now available online.  Thanks to Howard Grist for compiling these with his usual efficiency!


We had lots of feedback about various proposed changes to the grading bands for Golders Green and finally made a decision.  So - please note the changes to sections from next month
  • Open to All (the strongest section)
  • Under 170 Major
  • Under 145 Minor
  • Under 120 Amateur


Please also note that the late fee will rise to £20 on the day of the event, still £14 for Juniors U16 and members of Hendon Chess Club. 

Entry fees in advance remain very reasonable (£15.00), and most of our entries are now actually taken online, which reduces the amount of administation we have to do before the event and means we can check grades thoroughly.

The next tournament is on 10th October - see you there!

Best wishes

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! 

Scroll down to the bottom to access the archive of events. 

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.
