Seniors events only in Germany

The European Senior Championships and the World Senior Championships are now definitely postponed to 2021, possibly at the venues where they were due to be played this year. See our Seniors news page for more details.

The German Senior tournaments calendar has recently been redesigned and updated. We are in contact with Wolfgang Block who organises it.

Below you will find a list of the few German senior tournaments still scheduled for later this year. There is nothing scheduled yet for the first five months of next year and just one event in June 2021.

We include those tournaments which are described as Open, and are listed below, you will find links to further information on the German calendar. We do not include events which appear to be restricted to German players.

We are now largely suspending this service due to lack of activity until Senior tournaments resume, which we hope will be next year. But if you know of further tournaments, or cancellations, please inform us and we shall include them.

You do not have to wait for your birthday; you are qualified from 1 January in the year in which you reach the qualifying age. For tournaments this year, the qualifying dates for the two FIDE age groups are 31 December 1955 (for 65+) and 31 December 1970 (for 50+).
