INTRODUCTION

Since 1992 teams of three players have competed in the International Tournament.

The intention is to have two divisions allowing both strong and weaker teams to participate. Strongest and weakest team members should be no more than ten grades different and teams must represent a location, preferably a country (tenuous links allowed) or alternatively a go club. A team’s captain should be indicated with a ‘(c)’.

It is the second day of a weekend event with two separate tournaments:

  • Day 1: T Mark Hall Rapid Play Tournament – 5 round individual, 40 minutes sudden death
  • Day 2  International Teams Tournament (run since 1992) 3 round, 45 minute, sudden death.

Both tournaments are class C for EGF rating.

Since 2018 the International Team Tournament is part of the T Mark Hall Rapid Play Weekend.
