Torbay Chess League

Coronavirus Update

After suspending all matches from 16th March 2019 until the end of the 2020-21 season, the Torbay Chess League is delighted to be resuming over-the-boad matches for the 2021-22 Season. However due to reduced participation by clubs and players, there will be just two Standardplay leagues and a knockout competition.

The Torbay Chess League runs inter-club competitions for chess clubs in South Devon, over an area that spans Teignmouth, Newton Abbot, the Torbay area (including Torquay, Paignton and Brixham), the South Hams (including Kingsbridge, Totnes, Ivybridge and Dartmouth) and Plymouth.

In the 20210-22 season the Torbay Chess League is running two Standardplay leagues, each for teams of four players:

  • Division A: no rating limits
  • Division 2: maximum team rating under 6,200.

There is a knockout competition (the "White Knights Chemicals Knockout") for teams of six players with a maximum team rating of under 10,000.

The Torbay Chess League runs the ever popular Torbay Chess Congress in the Torquay/Paignton area, and the next congress is planned for 11th to 13th November 2022.
