LCC's May's Monthly Rapidplay Chess Tournament

This is a friendly rapidplay chess tournament with each game lasting 30mins. Any one can enter. You do not need a rating to enter, but let me know if you have one or your level of play if you do not have one so that I can put you in the right group.


Registration  : 9:45am-10:15am

Group Stages: 10:15am-1:00pm

Lunch           : 1:00pm-1:30pm (order food about 30 min before 1pm)

Quarter Finals: 1:30pm-2:00pm

Semi Finals    : 2:00pm-2:30pm

Finals           : 2:30pm-3:00pm

Prizes           : 3:00pm-3:15pm

RATE OF PLAY: all moves in 30 minutes. Each player has 15 minutes. We do not have any clocks so, if any one has a chess clock please bring it in. If you have a smart phone you could also download an chess clock app which will do fine.

ENTRY FEE: £15, just RSVP and pay £15 on the day.

TOTAL PRIZE FUND: Is dependent on the number of entry (at least £100 guaranteed).

LATE ARRIVAL AND RE-PAIRING. Players who arrive more than 10 minutes late will be deemed to have lost their game by default.

Players present without an opponent can expect to be re-paired ten minutes after the tournament has started.

CATERING for the event will be provided by the Columbian Cafe.  A variety of hot and cold food will be available.

ENVIRONMENT: Please keep the area clean and do not make too much noise.

FREE PARKING in the area on Saturday, but always check the signs.

    It was excellent for the first tournament of LCC, all who turned up were nice. All the games were of good standards. Next time hopefully there would be more players.

    I have a chess clock which I can bring but what on earth are you going to do if there are not enough clocks?

    May 3, 2013

    • Amir H.

      Thanks for bringing yours, if there isn't enough clocks, we will use smart phone application chess clocks.

    Is this Saturday definitely a tournament, because I didn't realise it would be paid - I thought it was just for the glory!

    Is it possible just to play chess and miss out the tournament?

    • Amir H.

      It would be paid which will make it more interesting as there will be prizes too.
