The Welsh Correspondence Chess Federation (WCCF) are pleased to announce that entries for the Sixth British Webserver Team Tournament are now open; this tournament will start on 12th April 2020. The entry fee remains £20.00 per team. Entries should be sent to [email protected] and include the team name and the names, board numbers, and ICCF ID numbers of the team captain and each of the four players. The closing date for entries is Friday 10th April 2020. We will inform you of payment arrangements on receipt of your entry.
The full rules of the tournament are available on the WCCF website:
There are two significant changes from the 5th season.
- Guaranteed time of 3 days per move will be utilised. (In simple terms this means that a player cannot be “timed out” as long as they make a move every 3 days)
- Only 1 player in the team is required to be British registered (Welsh, Scottish or English)
We will be operating a Player-Team matching service, so any team looking for player or players look for a team should contact make contact on the address above.
