British Chess Championships cancelled

It is with great reluctance that the ECF is forced to announce that the British Chess Championships will not be held at Torquay this July. This is in response to the Covid-19 outbreak. Whether the Championships are cancelled, or are held later in the year, will depend on how the outbreak progresses in the next few months. All entry fees will be refunded.
