First Annual Chess Tournament at Handley Library

We are pleased to announce the First Annual Chess Tournament at Handley Regional Library.

Saturday, June 28th at Handley Library

Cost: FREE but Registration Limited to 20 players (12 slots remaining)

Style: Round-Robin Quads

Game: 30 minute time controls

Up to 5 Sections for prizes


Each section will have up to 4 players paired according to skill level.

Tournament Details have changed. I initially stated "Invitational".

Registration is now open to any and all who wish to participate.

Maximum 20 participants for prizes.

If demand is high, a standby list will be created to form additional quads.



Registration & Pairing at 10:00 am

Round One will begin at 10:30 am

Round Two will begin at 11:45 am

Round Three will begin at 1:30 pm


Prizes to top finishers in each section.


Boards and Notation Sheets will be provided, but feel free to bring your own.


Please bring your own clock.


The last Chess tournament in Winchester was decades ago. We hope to learn and improve the format for the future. In the future we will plan city-wide Open tournaments with cash prizes and quality trophies. All donations will be used to facilitate future chess activities in the Shenandoah Valley.


There are 18 slots remaining. The tournament will take 4-5 hours to complete. If you are able to commit to the finish, it would greatly help our ability to organize.


Please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested.
