Event Details‎ > ‎


The Lightning Championship will be held on Tuesday 17th January 2017 from 3pm.

Entries for this event will close at 2pm Tuesday 17th January.

Lightning, also known as blitz chess, means that players have only five minutes each to make all their moves in the game. This allows many games to be played in only a couple of hours. The quick-paced nature of the game means that it is very popular with young players!

This event will be broken up into two tournaments, an Under 18 tournament and and Under 12 tournament. Titles and minor medals/awards will be given out for all age categories (Open and Girls) as per main tournament breakdowns.
