Terms & Conditions


Prize Conditions

Each section’s prize fund is guaranteed as long as we run the section. Numbers may dictate that we merge tournaments. The overall fund will be increased if the total number of adult entrants exceeds 60 players. This will be awarded pro rata to each event based on their numbers.

Ungraded players may only win 1/3 of any prize, in any section except in the OPEN! A graded player will be in the ECF list (Normal or Rapidplay) with a code A to E.

A deduction of £5 will be made from any refund unless carried forward to a future Castle Chess event. Accommodation booked will have to be paid for unless at least 24 hours notice has been given.
