This event is organised by the unpaid volunteers of Hertfordshire Chess Association. All donations and proceeds will be used to promote the study and playing of Chess in Hertfordshire.

Each year the SCCU nominates an Open Tournament held within its affiliated counties to host the SCCU Championship. Hertfordshire last hosted the SCCU Championships in November 2013.

* The winner of the Open, if eligible, will be awarded the title of SCCU Individual Champion, presented with the Glenroy Cup, which shall be held for one year, and qualify for the British Championships 2016. If the winner has previously qualified, the place shall be awarded to the next eligible player.
