Robert Pilgrim Aggregate Trophy

This trophy came into being in 1973 with the aim of encouraging club members to participate in tournaments other than just the Club Championship.

To win the trophy a player needs to enter at least two tournaments. Its fair to say that any player in the club can win, regardless of their chess rating.


Points awarded in each tournament are as follows:
