Please follow this link to your dedicated hotel booking website – http://www.bebres.org.uk/events/british-chess-championships-.html
Hotels will be added regularly, as we are constantly approaching new ones, so please ask your members to review the website often and to book ASAP, as rooms are very scarce in Bournemouth at this time of year ….
In order to allow the Under 10 Championship to follow the Under 9 Championship, and also to reduce the number of double round days, the following format will be used for the 2016 Championships —
U8 Championship: Saturday, 23rd July
The list of qualifiers can only be compiled by the English Chess Federation once either:
At this point, the Qualification Secretary will be able to update the list of qualifiers. We hope that organisers and potential qualifiers accept this situation, and we would encourage organisers to submit their grading and/or rating files as soon as possible after the conclusion of their event in order for the ECF to be able to update the list of qualifiers in a timely manner. Any other steps organisers can take to send the results to the ECF (for example, a link to their website with results) would be appreciated.
To contact the Qualification Secretary about a qualification or any other matter related to qualification, please email email@example.com
The first lists of qualifiers will appear in November 2015.
Jonathan Hawkins is this year’s British Chess Champion and English Chess Champion, beating Keith Arkell in Round 11 to score 8½/11, half a point ahead of Danny Gormally, David Howell and Nick Pert.
The British Women’s Champion is Akshaya Kalaiyalahan, who scored 6½/11 and achieved a WIM Norm into the bargain! Akshaya also took the prize for the best performance in the Championship by a player graded under 2000.
