Welcome to the South of England Junior Chess Congress

1st and 2nd October 2022

I regret to inform you that the decision has been made today to postpone the 2022 Congress until the weekend of 1st/2nd October 2022.

This decision has not been taken lightly, but we feel it is much better to play it safe at the moment. Your health and safety is our top priority.


Please bear with me while I make the necessary arrangements. Given that the postponed event will be held in the new school year, it will not be possible to carry over tickets as the age groups will have changed, so I think the best way forward may be to refund everybody and set up a new event in due course. I will endeavour to organise full refunds over the coming few days.


Thank you for your understanding.

Covid-19 Safety Rules


We look forward to welcoming you to Yateley Manor in January. Please note the following rules we are putting in place, which will be strictly enforced:


One accompanying adult per family; a ticket must be obtained (free of charge) on Eventbrite when registering your child.


Everybody over the age of 16 must be able to show their NHS vaccination record or proof of a negative PCR test taken within the 48 hours preceding the event. This will be checked on arrival.


Masks optional for players and adults.


All rules subject to change.

We will be keeping a close eye on COVID regulations and will adhere to whatever the government and Yateley Manor school guidelines are at the time.


We know you will support us in our aim to keeping everyone as safe as possible.
