ACT Women's and Girls Championship

 After a break of a few years, the ACTJCL is organising the 2021 ACT Women's and Girls Championships. It will on the weekend of the 11th and 12th of September, and will be a 6 round swiss (3 rounds on each day). There is quite a good prize pool ($500 1st prize) and is open to all female players (not just ACT residents). Entries open tomorrow, and details can be found at

Previous tournaments attracted good fields of between 25 and 40 players, and there has already been a lot of interest in this years event. A number of strong junior players are expected to take part, along with strong active and semi active adult players. Girls chess in the ACT is on a bit of an upswing at the moment (with good numbers in out junior events) so this should be a popular and competitive tournament.
