Next up is the European Senior Individual Championships in Lublin, starting a few days from now.

No British players in the 50+ so far as I can see but quite a few English players in the 65+: Tony Stebbings, Terry Chapman, Brian Hewson etc. Good luck to all.

The European Senior Teams at Dresden, first round 27 October, no British teams yet:
(The 59+ and 65+ entries have not been separated yet in that file.)

The World Senior Individual Championships at Assisi, 11 rounds, first round on 15 November.

The invitation document is available at last and can be downloaded in PDF from my calendar where details of other Senior tournaments can also be found: ... =9&flag=30

Congratulations to both medallists, showing the importance of winning the last round in Swiss system events.

Next up: the European Senior Team Championships at Dresden late October/early November.

Entry fees 100 Euro per team, 60 Euro per player, increasing after tomorrow.
It's not necessary to submit the names of players at this stage, and anyway team composition can be changed later.

List of entries so far at (both age categories in same list at present):

No English or Welsh teams entered yet. Scotland has entered two teams with no specification but presumably one in each tournament.
Ireland is about to submit entries for one 50+ and two 65+ teams.
