Club Competitions

At present we run two competitions annually through the playing season (September to May).  One is the matchplay competition, based on the results of games played in inter-club matches.  The other is the competition for the Kellett Trophy.  We also periodically hold Swiss Tournaments based on 10-minute (per player) rapidplay games, usually combining these with refreshments as a social event.

Matchplay Competition

The Matchplay Competition is based on results obtained in team matches throughout the playing season, scoring 1 for a win and 0.5 for a draw. At least 7 games must be played to be in contention.  In the season 2014-2015 Kieran Newell was the winner, scoring 78% from a total of 7 games.  Geoff Smith was the runner-up with 58% from 12 games. Congratulations to both players!

Kellett Trophy Competition

This is an internal tournament in which those entering played up to four games against all their competitors and score 1 for a loss, 2 for a draw, and 4 for a win. This season the cup was again won by Roger Beswick with 77 points, and the runner-up was Geoff Clarke with 63 points.  Congratulations to both members!


Our Swiss Rapidplay Tournaments

During the season just ended we held three Socials + Rapidplay Competitions on Wednesdays in September, December and May. Warm thanks to Phil Ramsey who organized the events, and to all those who brought along refreshments on these occasions. They were all well attended and again proved highly enjoyable, so that the pattern will be repeated in the forthcoming season.  Watch the Home page of this site for announcements of the dates!  The next event will be soon after the season starts in September.
