🆕 There seems to have been a qwxcl involving the ETwA mailing list (not our fault), and some addresses have dropped off. We are attempting to recover it, but if you believe you should be on the ETwA list but did not receive an email about dates for the Pairs and summer tournaments dated 12 May 2022, please contact us.

🆕 Tournaments have restarted following a hiatus because of COVID-19. There have been events in UK (National Singles), the USA (Cornell re-opening), and world challenge matches. Details in the "Events" tab. Ratings have been updated.
