Ivy League Chess Challenge (8-10 November 2019)

We are thrilled to share with you an opportunity to attend an international chess competition hosted by the Hart House Chess Club. The 2nd Ivy League Chess Challenge is to be held 8-10 November 2019 at the Hart House Building.

Our beloved club will take on four reputable U.S. Universities of the North East (Michigan, Harvard, Yale and Princeton) and we are looking for eight players to represent University of Toronto in this team competition! Each of the 5 rounds will be played with 90′ + 30″ time control and the games will be FIDE rated. All current UofT students who purchase an annual HHCC membership for the 2019-2020 academic year will be eligible to participate in the tournament for a discounted entry fee of $30 per player.

If this is an event that interests you, we encourage you to please let us know by sending an email to hhchess@utoronto.ca by no later than Friday, September 20th, 10 pm. In your e-mail please include:

– Your CFC/FIDE/other rating.
– The level of your commitment for the three days of the tournament.

The selections will be made over the weekend based on these two selection criteria and announced on Monday, September 23rd.

This is a fantastic opportunity to represent UofT and we hope you will consider joining our team! Of course, should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to let us know.

We look forward to hearing back from you soon!
