The 5-night holiday runs from Sunday afternoon through to Friday morning and the main aim is for guests to enjoy themselves whilst increasing their knowledge of chess and gaining confidence in using various tactics.
The holiday includes — a seven-round Swiss competition; a look at some games from the past; tutorial sessions covering opening principles, middle game, endgame techniques; chess tactics (pin, skewer, fork and discovered check); analysis of games played at the hotel.
Time will be available during the holiday so you have the opportunity to take in some of the breathtaking scenery of the Lake District. The holiday is suitable for anyone from the inexperienced (ungraded) player to local club players, though not for anyone above 150 grading.
