BCA British Championship 2017

Saturday 27th May to Saturday 3rd June 2017

We have now passed our closing date but if you are interested in taking part please contact the tournament organiser, there may still be space for late entries. 

The British Championship will be held at The Old Swan Hotel, Harrogate. It will be a seven round event, with one round each day, and will be open to all visually impaired chess players both from the UK and overseas. It will also be open to all associate members of the BCA. The British Champion will be the highest placed UK visually impaired player. Depending on the entry, there may also be a Challengers event in addition to the main championship.

We are pleased to be returning to this hotel with its excellent facilities. It has proved popular on previous occasions for our weekend tournaments, and we feel it will be very suitable for our week long event. It is located close to the town centre and a short taxi ride from Harrogate railway station.

The cost to BCA members and associate members will be 270 per person for the week, for dinner, bed and breakfast regardless of room type. The entry fee will be 10. For anyone staying part of the week only, the cost will be 40 per person per night for dinner, bed and breakfast. For anyone wishing to stay additional nights at the beginning or end of the tournament, the cost per night will be 63 per person in a single room and 56.50 per person in a twin or double room.

Payment for entry and all accommodation, including any additional nights, should be sent to the Treasurer by the closing date of 31st March 2017.
