Warwickshire Tournament

It was an excellent weekend of Chess and a very well run tournament. So Thanks to Ed Goodwin, Dave Ireland and Joshua Pink. I know a lot of other Coventry players enjoyed playing in the Tournament.

There were also some excellent results from Coventry Players in all sections.

Second Division Winners Warwickshire Open Summer Cup

I am pleased to say that the C Team, having secured a win against Newdigate on the 1st March, are Second Division Champions. So congratulations to Bava, Howard Jones, Ian Evans.

The D team also finished a very creditable fourth place and only 2/3 points off a Runners up position.

The E team whilst they finished bottom had a really good season - it may seem strange to say that but it was their first season in the Second Division and they achieved FIVE draws and one win so only just missed out on getting more points for safety.

Just a reminder that the Warwickshire Open takes place this weekend - 5th and 6th March at Coventry Rugby Club Butts Park Arena. I know a number of Coventry members are taking part, so good luck to all of them. It is not to late to enter so if you wish to play at the weekend. Here is the link for more details: -

I will also confirm the date when the Summer Cup will start in a few weeks. (It very much depends on the results of the Knock Out Cup)
