The League is now looking for new teams next season 2024-2025

We're hoping to be back later in September 2024

If you are looking to enter a small team locally later this year (2024) of a 4 player team of any standard then register you interest here.

The format for The Bury and Rochdale League for Season 2024-2025 would probably be One Division which would have a longplay and rapidplay played over 4 boards. The rapidplay league where players play their opponents twice on the night with 30 minutes each on the clock, over 4 boards. These are ideas only and are up members to decide how the league will be formed. Players can be of any strength but the total for a 4 board team should not be above 6600 elo points.

Captains to announce before the match starts that all players must switch off their phones!
Longplay time control:
80 mins plus 15 seconds a move or if juniors are playing:
60 mins plus 15 seconds a move.

B Division teams of 4 players to not exceed maximum total of ecf 500 points. Ungraded players count as ecf 125.
