Counties & Districts Correspondence Chess Championship 2023

Russell Sherwood  Sunday, January 29, 2023

The Joint British Committee is pleased to announce the 2023 Counties and Districts Correspondence Chess Championship.

As in the past the event will be made up of 3 Divisions of teams of 8 players, using the Hutton pairing system. As each player only undertakes 2 games, this is an ideal event for both new and experienced players.

The closing date for entries is the 17th of February, with an expected start date of the 1st of March, leading to an end date of 29/01/2024 with any remaining games going to Adjudication. The entry fee is £15 per team and entries should be sent to the Tournament Organiser, Russell Sherwood, who will confirm payment options.

Players in established teams should contact their team captains. New players wishing to take part should contact Phil Beckett (ENG) , Gordon Anderson (SCO) or Russell Sherwood(WLS) for encouragement and advice on possible teams. As a reminder, place of birth, education or residence are all valid qualification reasons for team membership.

As a reminder to all players, changes to ICCF rules now mean that if you ETL (Flag Fall) you will be suspended from entering new events for 30 days. If you ETL again in that period, the suspension will be extended.

This has already crept up in events, so don't get caught out!
