Nell Van de Graaff Classic

Mermaid Waters Hotel
9:30 am - 6:00 pm

One of Queensland’s most prestigious weekenders!

 

The Nell Van de Graaff Classic is held yearly to celebrate Nell Van de Graaff and her passion for chess. This event is also unique in that whilst it is an individual tournament, players will also be able to compete as part of a team. Team rating averages must be under 1500 ACF in the Open and 850 QJ in the junior. Teams can be advised in advance, or we can help put you in a team on the day (Arbiters will work to make team averages as competitive as possible, however cannot guarantee all teams a realistic chance at team prizes).

Players must record their moves during their game.

Players must be members of the Chess Association of Queensland to participate.

 

2 Divisions!
For the first time ever, due to the growth and popularity of the event we are splitting the tournament in 2.
