Two Rushall players played in the Midlands Open from Friday the 11th to Sunday the 13th of August 2017. They were 1691 rated Rich Wiltshir, and 1558 rated Devan Patel.
They started as 3rd and 2nd bottom seed respectively. It was a 5 round tournament, with one round on the Friday night at 7pm and two rounds on the Saturday and Sunday at 10am and 3pm. Many players decided it right to take the bye on the Friday night, but the two Rushall players decided to play and got very difficult opponents as it was the first round.
