Next Rotherham Online Events


Despite a sporadic return to over-the-board chess, organisers of the award-winning Rotherham Online website have decided to continue with new competitions for the time being.


Entries are now being taken for the Autumn Rapid, an open Swiss tournament over six rounds, played at the rate of one game per week with a time limit of 15 minutes + 10 seconds per move increment.


The Rapid tournaments have proved popular in the past and attracted strong competition with the first two being won by players rated 2505 and 2406 on Lichess.


The website is also running a more leisurely Classical competition at a rate of 30 minutes + 30 seconds per move increment, split into sections according to strength.


Both the Rapid and classical tournaments are free to enter, and start on Wednesday, September 22nd.

Entries will be taken up to midnight on September 21st, late entries after that only at the discretion of the organisers.
