There is no Auckland Interclub tournament this year, but there’s still the Auckland Teams Arena (ATA), a series of two-day (one normal weekend) tournaments at ACC that you can join. ATA August will also be the only classical OTB weekender besides the NZ Seniors Champs this month.
ACC would like to invite other Auckland clubs to build teams and bring them for these fun team events. The entry fee is only 20 NZD for six FIDE- and NZCF-rated games. Even though we don’t offer prize money, there are more lasting things on offer like T-shirts for individual winners and teams, and a lot of team spirit. For the August event, we will also have outdoor lunch with pizza and drinks (weather permitting).
Note: teams can be of any size, as long as they won’t be more than half of the tournament list. The tournaments are run as individual Swiss events, but team members won’t be paired against each other. The team score is the sum of the top 4 scorers.
