Shropshire Chess Congress 2018


We are looking forward to another great congress in January 2018 and hope that you will join us to be part of the event.

Last year saw Alan Merry IM emerge as the sole winner of the Shropshire Open 2017 winning the 1,000 first prize with GM Keith Arkell and Andrew Horton FM in second place.

For 2018, we hope to again welcome a number of titled players in the Open but we have also made important enhancements elsewhere in the congress with a new fourth section to provide more competitive chess across all grading bands.

The 2018 Congress sections are: Open; Major U170 ECF; Intermediate U140 ECF; and Minor U100 ECF.

Full details and an online entry form will be available very soon, but put the dates in your diary now and we look forward to seeing you in January. Francis Best and Steve Rooney
