Welcome to the Warwickshire Chess Association website

The aim of the association is to promote junior chess, county chess, correspondence chess and tournaments in Warwickshire.

There are 3 local leagues that players can participate in and they are the Birmingham and District Chess League, Coventry & District Chess League and the Leamington & District League.

The association enters teams into correspondence chess competitions. The three competitions are Ward-Higgs, Sinclair and Butler-Thomas. There are either 8 players or 10 players on a team. Some of the games are played through a webserver and others are done through postal.

The association enters 6 teams into the inter-county championships. The sections are the Open, U100, U120, U140, U160 and U180. The championships are run through the Midland Counties Chess Union (MCCU) and the best 2 teams from each section progress to the English Chess Federation (ECF) national stages.

Each year the association runs a tournament which is the Warwickshire Chess Congress. This is open to everyone and there are sections for players of all abilities. The best scoring Warwickshire player in the Open section is awarded the title of Warwickshire County Champion.
