Rapid Play vs The Juniors: Players Needed!!

Dear members, we have a number of exciting rapid play games against our local junior clubs coming up and we need volunteers to play!

For those of you not familiar with the format, it’s two games against the same opponent each evening, one as White and one as Black. Time control is 20 minutes with a 5 second increment per move. We’ll be getting the games graded too, so they’ll all count towards your ECF rapid play grade.

The dates are as follows:

  • 20th February vs Fulham Juniors, starting 6.15pm at Lytton Hall. 10 boards required for this one.
  • 1st March vs SW-London Juniors, starting 6.15pm at St Luke’s Church, West Brompton. 15 boards required for this one.
  • 13th March vs SW-London Juniors, starting 6.15pm at Lytton Hall. Again, 15 boards needed! This will be followed by some training, analysis and insights from Tony Niccoli – should be a good one!

Please get in touch if you’d like to play – John White is the man to contact: john.white49@ntlworld.com

These games follow on from our successful double-header against Fulham Juniors last season. It’s a terrific experience, some of the youngsters are amazing players and you’ll undoubtedly have a fast-paced and action-packed pair of games each night. We need players across all grades, reflecting the varied strength of the youngsters.

Hope to see you there!
