Format: With the success or the 2021 Club Championships the committee has decided to continue the change to a Swiss format for all tournaments by combining divisions in a way that retains the small group character,
There is a number of 9-round Swiss tournaments.
Players are assigned to divisions based on ACF Classic ratings (or where a player does not have an ACF Classic rating, their FIDE Standard rating is assessed relative to other players' FIDE ratings). Selected juniors may be elevated by one division.
Due to final entry numbers organisers may increase or reduce the number of divisions.
Rating: Results will be submitted for FIDE Standard and ACF Classic rating.
Prizes: A trophy will be awarded to the winner of each division.
