ICCF Aspirers

Aspirer sections are ideal for players new to chess and typically rated under 1600.

Games will be rated and whilst there is no promotion or relegation, this is a good place to start with the aim to learn and improve in a tournament environment. Some players may then wish to move towards the ICCF Open class promotion tournaments. Existing players rated less than 1600 are also welcome to play in this tournament.
