Counties and Districts 2021 Clearing House

Russell Sherwood  Monday, December 21, 2020

The 2021 edition of the Tournament is expected to start in January. 

This tournament follows the unusual Hutton tournament where teams of 8 player two games (one as Black and one as white against the same opponent) with the cycling of pairings meaning that each team players each other team.

As in the past we will operate a clearing house - Teams in the past have been fielded for players representing West Wales, East Wales, and we hope again this year to organize a team representing North Wales.

The event is played over 3 divisions, which means that there are games to suit all strengths of player

C & DCCC 2020 Division 1 - Ward-Higgs

C & DCCC 2020 Division 2 - Sinclair

C & DCCC 2020 Division 3 - Butler Thomas

With only two games the CDCCC is a great way to get involved in representative correspondence chess.

If you are interested or wish to know more get in touch with Russell Sherwood  

Note: This event is only open to players flagged as English, Scotland, Wales or isolated.
