Why Not Try the 'First Thursday' Hendon Chess Club Blitz Chess Tournaments?

  • Held on the first Thursday of every month – see the calendar for upcoming dates.
  • Venue: Golders Green Parish Church Hall, West Heath Drive, Golders Green, London NW11 7QG
  • Starts at 7.30pm promptly, finishes 10pm.
  • £5.00 to enter, £3.00 if you are a member of Hendon Chess Club. Cash only.
  • There will be a 1st prize, a prize for the highest Hendon Chess Club member and other prizes depending on entries.
  • 10 minutes per player per game (in other words each game lasts a maximum of 20 minutes)
  • FIDE Blitz Rules apply: it is always touch and move, completed illegal moves lose, etc.
  • If this is too fast for you, try the Golders Green Rapidplays (30 minutes per player per game!)
  • You don't have to have a grade or belong to Hendon Chess Club to play.
  • Ungraded players may win first prize but will not be eligible for the grading prizes. They may be assigned a grade by the organiser.

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.
