Chandler’s Ford Chess Club has four club tournaments: the Summer Tournament, the Ladder, the Knock-out tournament, and the New Tournament.
This is run during the summer, and is played in a 5-round Swiss format between May and September. The winner’s name is engraved on the Kooner Cup and receives a replica of the Cup. The organiser is Malcolm Clarke.
The Chandlers Ford Chess Ladder runs each year. You can challenge a player up to 4 rungs above you: if you win you swap places, otherwise you both stay where you are. At the end of the 12 months the winner is awarded with a trophy. The organiser is Nobby George.
The Knock-out starts with a Preliminary Round, The subsequent Rounds reduce the field of players by half each round, until the 2 remaining players play a final to determine the winner. It is organised by Steve Dunleavy.
The Book Prize Tournament started at the beginning of November 2020. There are ten players in this all-play-all (9 Rounds). The games are played online at lichess.org. The time control is 90 minutes each. It is organised by Peter Przybycin.
