Wednesday 28th July 2021


Carmel College

108 Shakespeare Road, Milford.


A 6-round swiss-system event for teams of four players (with optional reserve) from years 9 to 13 from the same school. The games will be NZCF and FIDE rated where possible. Players should be ranked in order of playing strength; the order must be declared before the start of the event and must not change during the event. Furthermore, players in team A should be stronger than those in team B, and so on. Note that teams may be paired against another team from the same school.

Adult Support

Visiting school teams must have an adult (teacher, parent, or guardian) present to supervise them. Teams which arrive without such a supervisor will not be allowed to take part. Teams whose supervisor leaves during the event will be withdrawn from the pairings.

Time Controls

15 minutes per player plus an increment of 5 seconds per move. Digital chess clocks will be used.


Teams need to sign in before 9:00am on the day of the tournament. A players’ meeting will follow and we should start at about 9:15am. There will be a break for lunch and we aim to finish by 2:30pm.


First three teams will receive gold, silver, and bronze medals, which will be individually engraved with each player’s name and sent, with certificates, to school Principals after the event, for presentation at Assembly. Those players who score 6/6 will also receive medals and certificates. If there is a trophy, it will be engraved and delivered to the winning school.
