News Story: Newry FIDE Summer Classic doubles capacity

For the upcoming FIDE-rated event in Newry on Sunday 14th August, the U1800 Summer Classic, we were limited to 18 players but have now taken a second room at the arts centre to increase capacity to 36. We have also increased the number of trophies/shields/cups available to win.

It is wonderful to see players travelling from far and wide, with entrants from Dublin, Rostrevor, Warrenpoint, Armagh, Moy, Ballyclare, Greenisland, Belfast, Bangor and Ards. So far 12 of the participants have FIDE classic ratings and we hope more will get over the line to make their FIDE debut after the 4 games in this tournament.


There are currently 33 enrolled and we have 3 spaces left. The deadline for entering remains at 10am on Tuesday 2nd August. Entry fee is £15 per person. Free entry for 2nd and 3rd players from the same family.
