Norman and yElena Went provided the marvellous refreshments for our chess tournaments which is widely appreciated. 

They also (in their spare time) grade our tournaments and (in whatever time is left) run an excellent series of rapidplays (and some congresses) which I recommend;

Docklands Rapidplay on 17th September

Fareham Weekend Congress (Hampshire) on 24th &25th September:
Select the congress using the select box to see congress details.

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.
