European Women’s Championship tells chess players to dress more appropriately

Do chess players wear uniforms? They might have those t-shirts with their names embroidered in cursive on the left pocket, but I can’t imagine uniforms would be necessary. Dress codes, however, are a different story. Apparently the European Women’s Championship has been having a bit of a problem with the way the players have been dressing.

Décolletés are partly covered in our regulations, which state that in respect to shirts the second from the top button may also be opened, in addition to the very top button. But, nothing is written in our rules about the length of skirts or dresses. There are several special rules in some companies which put restrictions on the length of skirts and dresses – no shorter than 5-10 cm above the knees for example. I can see that there are many players here who wear very short skirts. It’s nice to see chess players with short skirts – they are very pretty girls. But I believe there should still be some limit.

Come on ladies, clean it up. We had to go through this with bowling first and now chess? The EWC also has a clear-cut dress code which states that “the pieces of the clothing should be crisp, show no excessive wear, no holes and shall be free of body odor.” Button your buttons and wear deodorant. Seems simple enough.

H/T Game On!
