Hammel Cup

Awarded to the winner of the UCU Summer Tournament. Played through the summer months at the rate of one game per week, players play as often (or as little) as they want, but must play 10 games to be eligible for the prize-list. The tournament is normally hosted by Civil Service Chess Club, but was played at CIYMS in 2002 and North Belfast in 2009.
History of the Hammel Cup
The Hammel Cup, or to give its full title "The Joseph Hammel Memorial Cup", was originally presented to the Belfast Chess Club in 1949 and was awarded to the winner of the club's annual Handicap tournament. That competition ended with the demise of the Belfast club in 1971.
