2023 Camberley Keith Richardson Rapid Play Tournament

The 2023 Keith Richardson Memorial Tournament was held on Saturday 30th Sep. Keith was a valued club member from the 1970s, an International Correspondence Grandmaster and very well known in the English chess community. He suffered from Parkinson’s disease and died in April 2017.

Thanks to all the players and everyone who helped beforehand and on the day which clearly made it a most enjoyable tournament. Linda on teas and coffees and Angela’s cakes need a special mention!

Around £300 was raised for Parkinson’s Charity including money raised from the sale of cakes and books.

Next year’s Keith Richardson Tournament is planned for 28th Sep 2024.
