Internal events

We have two internal competitions running throughout the playing season (September to June).

1) The FIDE rated competition is for our strongest players with a view to giving them the opportunity to obtain an international rating. This is run by Ian Snape from September to March.

The winner for 2019 is shown in Club News.

2) The non-FIDE competition is an all-play-all handicap competition run on a league basis until March followed by semi-finals and a final in April/May. This is run by Tony Foreman and the latest information is shown in Club News

We also hold 2 events at the end of each season for club members. On the first Thursday in June, there is a friendly match between Beckenham and Bromley residents. It starts at 7.45 and has a time limit of 30 moves in an hour and then 15 minute quickplay. This event requires pre-registration with the secretary who will send out his details a few weeks before the event.

On the last Thursday of June, we hold a handicap quickplay competition at 7.30. 10 minutes total playing time per game. This event does not require pre-registration but a reminder will be sent to members a few weeks before the event. The winner is shown in Club News for 2019-20.
