Welcome to the Kidlington Chess Tournament website!

KCTvenueKidlington is a well-established event in the English tournament calendar with a seasoned team of experienced controllers and a friendly atmosphere.  Last February we again attracted a large number of entries, reaching the maximum number of entrants our venue, Exeter Hall, could accommodate ten days before the tournament. Unfortunately, bad weather caused more than the usual small number of withdrawals, but we still had a very healthy figure of 180 players.

Our 43nd annual tournament takes place this weekend, Saturday & Sunday 1 & 2 February, 2020, with four sections, Open, U180, U145 and U120, and a prize fund of over £2200.

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.

Entries now closed: Entries for this weekend’s Kidlington Tournament are now closed, and the online entry form has been removed. We look forward to welcoming all entrants on Saturday!

A full list of entrants can be seen via the Kidlington 2020 tab, where you will also find links to other information about the upcoming tournament. Further announcements may also be found under the News and Updates tab.
