This tournament is run as an individual event in two divisions - Primary and Secondary. The winning school is determined by adding the 4 highest scorers from each school. This means that your school can enter any number of players, and there is no need to rank them by ability, or assign teams.
This tournament is a 7-round ‘Swiss’ competition. This means that all players play 7 games and no-one is ‘knocked out’ of the tournament.
Chess clocks will be used in this event. There will be a short demonstration on the use of chess clocks for new players, before the start of the tournament.
The time limit is 15 minutes per player per game.
Trophies awarded to top scoring players in each Division: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th.
Trophies awarded to top 3 placed schools in each Division.
All participants receive a certificate of participation.
The top 3 schools from each heat qualify for the Regional Semi-Finals, to be held in Term 3.
