Huddersfield Club Championship is a 6 round tournament paired on a 'Swiss' system.  All games are played on club nights (Wednesday's) starting at 19:30.

The dates for each round will be set once the local league fixtures are out. 


Rules 

All players should be fully paid up members of Huddersfield Chess Club

All matches are expected to be played on the night designated for that round, unless the player makes reasonable attempts to rearrange the fixture.  If games are rearranged they must be played at least 7 days before the next round. 

The draw will be made for each round at least 7 days before the round is due, and will be posted on the club website. 

Byes: players may ask for a half point bye in advance of the draw being made, for all but the last round. 

Unplayed games will result in the tournament committee awarding points in the tournament as they feel appropriate given information received on why the game was not played.
