British Championship Changes

The English Chess Federation have announced that the deadline for entries has been extended to 30th June 2019.

Hampshire Chess Congress 2019

“For many years the early entry fee deadline for the Championships was late in June. This year we decided to move this to 1st June 2019. However, we recognise that we should have communicated this change more effectively and have therefore decided to extend the early entry deadline until 30th June 2019, which brings the deadline back in line with previous years’ championships. Our apologies to all concerned.

Any player who has not yet entered the Championships has the opportunity to enter at the lower entry fee until this date. After this date, the higher entry fee will apply without exception.”
