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 (https://www.chessdirect.co.uk/) and the fine range of refreshments provided by Hackett's Outside Catering (https://www.facebook.com/HackettsWitney/) of Witney.

After the software problems which occurred on the Sunday morning of last February's tournament, we are switching to Swiss-Manager as our tournament management software for our 2020 event.

Further details about the tournament can be found via the tournament website (https://kidlingtonchess.org.uk/). You may enter using the online form to be found under the 'Kidlington 2020' tab on the website, or you may download a form from there if you prefer to send in your entry by post.

On-line entries have closed at a head count of 182. That's near capacity.
