2019 Welsh Championships

This year’s Championships were, once again, held at the Cardiff North Hotel. Numbers were slightly down on previous years but this was understandable due to a clash with the World Seniors Championships taking place simultaneously in Rhodes.

The Championships were once again sponsored by “Wholesale Chess” and we thank them for their continued support of Welsh chess.

We also thank the controlling team of Peter Purland, Geoff Gammon and David Clayton for their work over the long weekend.
