Tournament Arrangements The
tournaments will be run using a SWISS system.
(Junior section) For those not familiar with the
system; if your child loses their first round,
they are almost certain to play someone else who
has lost their first round. Thereafter, they
play people on roughly equal points to them. The
advantage of this system is that very quickly
children end up playing others of the same
ability and the likelihood of your child losing
all his/her matches is very low.
Open and Junior Major results will be submitted
for ECF online grading.
