Rotherham Online Summer Cup


As the over-the-board league season draws to a close for most clubs, organisers of the award-winning Rotherham website have decided to run an individual Summer Cup tournament open to all comers at home and abroad, and free to enter.


The competition, over six rounds, starts next Wednesday (July 20th).


Each round lasts one week with players able to arrange their games, using the chat room on the Rotherham site, at a date and time to suit themselves

and their opponent.

Byes are available on request to cater for anyone going on holiday.


Games will be played on the Lichess platform at the rate of 30 minutes, plus a 20 seconds per move increment.


Entries will be taken up to midnight on Tuesday, July 19th or early the following morning at the discretion of the organisers.
