The 43rd annual Kidlington Chess Tournament will take place at Exeter Hall, Kidlington, on Saturday & Sunday 1 & 2 February, 2020. We shall again have four sections, Open, U180, U145 and U120, and a prize fund of over £2200.
The Open section will incorporate the second leg of the 2019-20 Oxfordshire Individual Championship. Its first leg was incorporated in the Open section at the Witney Chess Congress held on 2 & 3 November 2019. The Oxfordshire Individual Chess Champion for 2019-20 will be the eligible player with the highest combined score in the Open sections of the two tournaments.
As usual, we shall have the excellent bookstall provided by Chess Direct and the fine range of refreshments provided by Hackett’s Outside Catering of Witney.
