2020 Chess

In support of:




UK Team Rapidplay Competition!

(n.b this page is now dormant due to the Covid-19 situation)



 2020 Chess is a one-day rapid play event, with 20 minutes for each player to make their moves per game over five rounds, without increment.

The entry price is just £10 for adults and £8 for students and under-eighteens. 

We aim to raise as much money as possible for Oxfam each season!

Last season 2019-2020 we managed to raise £1100 , which could supply a whole village with running water. 


 The qualifiers in various UK regional cities will determine who goes through to the 2020 Grand Final, where the best '20/20' Chess Team will be awared their title; with cash prizes medals, books, gift vouchers and trophies up for grabs along the way.

You can enter as many qualifiers as you like to maximise your chance of going through!

  We've had over 1000 players take part from Chess clubs, schools and universities from right across the UK as well as being featured in the Yorkshire Post, British Chess Magazine and CHESS and supported by the Mayor of York and Right Honourable Lord Lyndon Harrison
