about chess at golders green
You're probably here because a) you play chess and you're looking to take part in over the board competitions and b) you read that I run (with lots of help from friendly volunteers) the monthly Golders Green Rapidplays in Leonard Barden's excellent Evening Standard column, or on the ECF (English Chess Federation) tournament calendar. Well, you found the right website!
Thanks for visiting. Don't forget to enter online in time for the next event. Please subscribe to our mailing list! All the games are graded by the ECF and part of the ECF Grand Prix. ALL SECTIONS are rated by FIDE in their rapidplay list. You have to be a member of the ECF (SILVER LEVEL or above) to take part in ANY section. However, players who are not ECF *Silver* members or above will be charged £25.00 to enter. Ring 01424 775222 to join the ECF or visit http://www.englishchess.org.uk/. Here are the dates for 2014 and 2015.
You have one of the best chess websites I have seen. It is very friendly and clever. As the chess administrator for the family, I am seriously impressed by the on-line booking. A Chess Parent
