Allegro League Arrangements 2019-20

Entries have been received for the 2019-20 Allegro League. 15 teams have entered - one more than last year. Attempts are being made to find a 16th team so we have an even number so everyone gets a game in each round. (Previously we'd had 14, 12 and 8 , which suggests that the change of venue has made the event more accessible and popular).

The regulations are as shown in the rules section. Each team on any evening cannot exceed a grading total of 6000 or an average of 1500 per player.

The fixture dates, pairings and lastest standings are shown on the results page

Games will be played under the Chess Scotland rules for rapid play matches. Copies of these rules will be on display.

The venue for this season is again Slateford Bowling Club, 28 Lanark Road, Edinburgh, EH14 1TH, which some of you will know as the clubrooms of the Civil Service and Gorgie Dalry Chess Clubs.

The premises open at 7pm. Matches start at 7.30 pm with a 15 minute break in the middle finishing at
9.45 pm.
