Kidlington is a well-established event in the English tournament calendar with a seasoned team of experienced controllers and a friendly atmosphere. This year again we attracted a large attendance, and we reached the maximum number of entrants our venue can accommodate (192) on the Monday before the tournament.
Our 42nd annual tournament will also 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 £2000.
The Open section will incorporate the second leg of the 2018-19 Oxfordshire Individual Championship. Its first leg will be incorporated in the Open section at the Witney Chess Congress to be held on 3-4 November 2018.
The latest information about next February’s tournament can be found via the ‘News and Updates’ tab.
