This year’s event is now underway with a strong Welsh contingent in all three divisions:
British Championship 21/23
A Category 7 event this year, although with a very different feel to last year! 5 Welsh players (Ian Jones, Paul Keevil, Russell Sherwood, John Claridge and Helen Sherwood) make up the 15 involved who are joined by GM Peter Coleman (ENG) 2586. An interesting event awaits with most players taking their time in preparation (only 17 games started out of 105)
British Candidates A 2021/23
Welsh interests in this Category L event are carried by Rhys Jones, Josh Robinson, Jon Coles and Alex Sherwood
British Candidates B 2021/23
In this parallel Candidates, also Category L, Welsh interests are: Marc Wakeham, Tom Gunn and Gareth Jones
British Reserves A 2021/23
In this rated event, David Guy and newcomer Gerald Jenkins fly the flag for Wales.
British Reserves B 2021/23
Newcomers Michael Bowley and Owain Dutfield represent Welsh interests
British Reserves C 2021/23

Overall a strong contingent. It has been a pleasure organizing the event on behalf of the Tri-Nations Committee this year.
