The competition format

Are you interested in playing rapid play chess? 

This is a singles competition and we welcome entrants at whatever level from beginner up to national standard. 

The format of the competition will be 25 minutes to make all your moves so that we can fit five rounds during the day.  Depending on the number of entries, it is expected that there will be one section using a swiss pairing system. It will be both fun and competitive
