For a variety of reasons, it will not now be possible to hold this event on the usual Kidlington weekend (the first full weekend in February). I apologize for this. We hope this will be merely a brief postponement and are currently considering dates towards the end of February. Further news will be posted here as soon as arrangements are firmed up.
With regret, we have decided to cancel the Kidlington Tournament which had been scheduled for 5 & 6 February 2022 as an over-the-board event, as it does not seem possible in the continuing pandemic situation to hold the tournament sufficiently safely. We hope to organize instead an online version of the tournament on that weekend. I will post further news on that soon.
We intend that the over-the-board Kidlington Tournament will continue, and I can confirm that we have booked our usual venue, Exeter Hall, for the 2023 tournament. As ever, the event is scheduled for the first full weekend in February, so we look forward to welcoming returning and first-time players for our next annual over-the-board tournament on Saturday and Sunday 4 & 5 February 2023.
