January 2022 - Mid Sussex League over the board chess returns

Fixtures for the 2021-22 season are now available, following the decision of the reconvened league AGM to resume over the board chess. Matches are 4 a-side and the season will now run from mid-January until mid-May with two divisions in the main league and a Junior Rapid Play.

December 2021 - Online competitions

Congratulations to Worthing, who won the Autumn Swiss fairly comfortably in the end, and also to Collyers, who just pipped Crowborough at the post for the Junior league. There will be a pause with the online competitions while we see if it is possible to run an over the board league from mid-January.

October 2021 Update - Mid Sussex Chess League - Online Competitions

Fixtures for the Autumn competitions are now available, good luck to everyone.

September 2021 Update - Mid Sussex Chess League - Online Competitions

Congratulations to Horsham and to Crowborough for winning the Summer Online Swiss and Summer Junior competitions respectively. Both tournaments were very hard-fought, with game points in the junior competition especially close. Great individual performance by Dix Roberts of Horsham and Alec Hedger of Worthing in scoring 5/6 in the Swiss tournament, and by Risha Jithendra (4/4) and Aanya Adhikari (3/3) of Crowborough and Kaysan Salajee (5/6) of Worthing in the junior division.

As most will know by now, the over the board Mid-Sussex has been delayed until at least January, so we plan to run another set of online competitions this Autumn. Invitations will be sent out shortly.
