Club Championships 2017

As the league season nears the end, the final round is on Sunday April 23rd in the ALSAA Sports Club.

Usually our club championships take place after the leagues but with the late finish of the leagues and commencement of Leinster Cup competitions in May, the committee decided to make a start with our club championships during April.

There will be 3 sections (depending on entry numbers) based on the latest published icu ratings.
A: 1500 +
B: 1200 – 1599

In the interests of best competition sections may be amalgamated or players may be floated up a section, at the discretion of the controller.

  • 6 round swiss
  • 1 game per week
  • Rate of play 90mins + 15secs increment per move or 105mins all moves (quickplay finish rules apply)  if agreed by both players
