Pixmore Open


This friendly event provides young players with an easy introduction to chess tournaments.

Entry Fee: £15 (£12.50 before Friday 2nd June). Discount of £2.00 on 3rd & subsequent sibling.

Down load Entry Form.

There will be five rounds of competitive chess interspersed with three training sessions and lunch, and the opportunity to play in a simultaneous against a strong player.

The tournament and coaching sessions are split into sections so as to match players of similar experience and playing strength.

This year, we are privileged to welcome International Master Paul Littlewood, British Chess Champion in 1981, as one of the coaches. He will also undertake one of the simultaneous displays.
