World Senior Team Chess Championships call to action

England will be sending its largest ever delegation of 42 players, to the World Senior Team Chess Championships (WSTCC) in the wonderful city of Krakow, Poland from 1st-12th July.  As things stand, we will be fielding a total of nine teams, with the England 50+ 1st team being an all GM line-up, led by 50+ World Champion Mickey Adams, and the 65+ 1st team also having a very strong line-up of GMs and IMs, led by 65+ World Champion John Nunn.  There is still time for interested England senior players to join one of the teams and be able to watch our top teams in action.

The closing deadline is 10th May and we are still considering further applications to join one of the England teams, so if you are rated over 1800 and will be aged 50 or 65 or over anytime within 2024, then you are eligible and should go to for further details on how to apply.
