DCCA Mamhead Challenge Cup
In 2019-20, South Hams has a team competing in the Devon County Chess Association (DCCA) Division 2 League, also known as the Mamhead Challenge Cup. The league is named after Lord Mamhead - Sir Robert Newman MP - who became the DCCA's third president in 1920. The Keverel Chess website has an interesting article on Sir Robert and Mamhead House, including a picture of the Challenge Cup.
The Mamhead is a 4-board competition, with an aggregate grade limit for each match of Under 640. There is no limit on individual player grades.
The Mamhead is a Saturday competition in order to enable teams from throughout Devon to travel to their away fixtures. The generous time controls - each player starts with 90 minutes, with 30 seconds added afer each move - are intended to encourage a high standard of chess!
Except when otherwise agreed between team captains, South Hams home matches in the Mamhead Challenge Cup will be played at the club's normal venue - the Regal Club, Kingsbridge.
The DCCA team competitions are administered through the ECF League Management System. Fixtures, results, league tables and other statistics can be viewed here..
