The ECF is relaunching the annual English Seniors Championship with a four day FIDE-rated and ECF graded congress at the St Johns Hotel, Solihull in April 2019.

The event will run for four days from 4th to 7th April, with a total of seven rounds. There will be two sections – Over 50s and Over 65s – with the two winners becoming English Seniors Champions for 2019/2020. English players aged 50 or over by the end of 2019 will be eligible to enter the Championships, with an ‘early bird’ discount available on entries received before 15th February.

We hope to see as many of you as possible at this exciting event to re-establish the Seniors Championship on the chess calendar.
