Launching the North Dublin Chess League

The North Dublin Chess League will have its inaugural year in 2011.  The league will be entered by individuals rather than clubs (although hopefully with the cooperation of the clubs).

The aim is that each player will play approximately 5 games over the summer of 2011.  The goal is for a friendly and informal league administered by the players for the players.  Players can play in their clubs, home etc. as suits them.  The league will be ICU rated.  Games will be 1.5 hours per player per game.

For the inaugural year, the league will target players with an ICU rating in the range 1400-1800.

Refer to the Frequently Asked Questions page for more details on the format.
