Blue 15 League
This is the page for the Blue15 league. It’s the new league starting in February 2022 with a 15 minute time control
Our original league was a 10 minute league. We are calling it the Red10 league.
The League Manager for the Blue League is David Thompson of Romsey Archway U3A.
The leagues run on a calendar monthly cycle. When you register to join the Leagues you will be included in the next available month in the lowest division.
When the league manager has a batch of 6 players he will email all of them with the names and email addresses of the players. It is up to each player to contact the others to make arrangements to play.
You will have until the end of the calendar month before that month’s round closes.
Time control of 15 minutes + 10s (15:10) per move. This means each player starts with 15:10 on the clock. Players can, by mutual agreement, play at a different time control (this may suit novice players).
Two games to play against each opponent; one as white and one as black. The two games constitute a match.
Divisions of 6 players. So each month you have 5 opponents to play.
New players will enter into an appropriate division
Promotion and relegation is usually of 2 up/down each month. In the event of a tie for these positions then they will be decided by lot
Matches can be played on any chess platform by mutual agreement; however the default platform will be chess.com
