Please note that these events are run as completely non-profit making. Our only aim is to cover our overheads.



Players without an existing FIDE ID need to supply their Date Of Birth at the point of registering. (This is to help us to register you with FIDE and for your results to be recorded, towards helping you to obtain an official FIDE chess rating).


Payments by PayPal, Revolut or Bank Transfer to Chief Arbiter: Brendan Jamison



Entries fees will be used to purchase engraved trophies for the following 6 winners:



- Champion


- 2nd Place


- 3rd Place


- Junior Champion


- Junior 2nd


- Junior 3rd


(~The Junior rating band will be determined closer to the date, based upon the number of entrants, but most likely U1100).



A portion of the entry fees will also be used towards the pot for the large grand prix cups/shields. We had 161 compete in last season’s NI Rapid Grand Prix so we may extend the number of prizes in 2024 if numbers remain high again this season.
