42nd annual Kidlington Chess Tournament

The 42nd annual Kidlington Chess Tournament will take place at Exeter Hall, Kidlington, on Saturday & Sunday 2 & 3 February, 2019. We shall again have four sections, Open, U180, U145 and U120.

The prize fund will be over £2200, including four new £40 prizes: an Under-130 grading prize in the U145 section, an extra Veterans' Prize in the U180 section and two new prizes for Juniors in the U120 and U145 sections.

As in the last two years, the Open section will incorporate the second leg of the 2018-19 Oxfordshire Individual Championship. Its first leg was incorporated in the Open section at the Witney Chess Congress held on 3 & 4 November 2018.

As usual, we shall have the excellent bookstall provided by Chess Direct and the fine range of refreshments provided by Hackett's Outside Catering of Witney.
