Our first Spring league ran between April and June 2020 and we are now running a Summer League starting between August and October.

The league has two divisions. Fixtures are set up in LMS which also provides the league tables. League matches are held on Thursday evenings on chess.com using team matches or individual challenges with two games at 15|10 for each board. Results are reported in LMS with league tables published for the two divisions.

The current plan is for two teams to be promoted from Div 2 to Div 1 and one team relegated from Div 1 to Div 2 at the end of the Spring Competition.

Teams and captains are as follows:
