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 results will be submitted for ECF online grading.
