All 3 Series will be played as a single complete round robin. The number of boards played in each match will be determined and published when the number of participants is known.
The Open Series will be played over 10 days, and the Women’s Championship and Seniors Championship will be played over 7 days.
For the Women Pairs, It is anticipated that the Championship will consist of two stages: a Qualifying Stage, and a Final Stage (Final A and Final B). However, should the number of participants permit, there will be a one stage all-play-all (Endless Howell) competition. Details of the competitions may be changed according to the final registration of participants.
