How the tournaments work

Chess for 2021-22 will be online organised by Ficheall using the Lichess.org website.

The tournaments will begin on Wednesday 3rd of November at 6pm.

They will run every Wednesday at 6pm for the next 6 weeks.

Schools from all over the country will be participating.

During the tournaments, the first round of matches will be generated at random, after that students will be paired up against an opponent who has the same number of wins and losses as they do, this is to ensure a fair level of competition.
