Please remember that as this event is taking place in the next school year, it is your child's age as of 1st September 2022 that counts.


Quick calculator as follows (year group as at 1st September 2022):

Given the lack of over-the-board chess for juniors over the past two years, we are trialling the introduction of a new U18 section this year so our older entrants who missed out can still play. If it is well attended, this will be a permanent fixture. Please spread the word!
