Orleans Park School, Richmond Road, Twickenham, Middlesex TW1 3BB

The 7 teams competing will be Barnet, Cambridge, Essex, Herts, Kent, Richmond A and Richmond B.

The match is played over 12 boards and three rounds using jamboree pairing.

The rate of play is all moves in 40 minutes plus 10 seconds per move from the start. If digital clocks are not available, the rate of play is all moves in 50 minutes.

An illegal move is completed once the opponent’s clock has been started. If either player has less than five minutes left on the clock and an illegal move is made, the arbiter may award the opponent two minutes for the first offence, and two minutes for the second offence. Three illegal moves by the same player when either player has less than five minutes will lead to the loss of the game.

Parents or approved adults are responsible for their children outside the playing hall.

Arrival – by 11.00am

Board Stewards Meeting – 11.15am

First Round – 11.45am
