The UK Open Memory Championships this year will be incorporated into a new international competition, the Pan European Memory Championships. With a prize fund of £2,000 (and other prizes) it is being sponsored by Brian Clivaz at the prestigious Devonshire Club, a new private members club close to London’s Liverpool Street Station. Brian has long been a supporter of the sport, initially for the WMC in Simpsons-on-the-Strand, and then as the host of the UK Open for the past few years at the L’Escargot Restaurant in Soho.

The Pan European will give competitors throughout Europe a new trophy to compete for and a new opportunity to increase their World Rankings in advance of the 26th World Memory Championships in Shenzhen, China in early December. There is a rumour going round that a certain very highly ranked competitor might be making a comeback and prove that age has nothing to do with memory. Watch this space!
