Welcome to the South of England Junior Chess Congress



We look forward to welcoming you to Yateley Manor in January. As things stand, all age group tournaments will be running as usual, including the English Closed Championships, but with a couple of important differences.


In order to keep numbers down on-site, we respectfully ask that only one parent/guardian accompanies each player or group of players from the same family. At this point in time, mask wearing will be optional but preferred.

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. Entries will open late September.
