Hampshire Junior Chess Association (HJCA) is building junior teams from the “ground up” for the 2017 – 2018 season and are focusing on the following county teams :
for the time being.
If you are keen on chess and wish to have the chance to play for your own home county then please get in contact. For the past few years junior chess in Hampshire has lacked its own teams and so myself (John Upham) and GM Nick Pert and others decided to do something about it.
You may well be currently playing for another county such as Surrey, Sussex, Dorset or Berkshire. This is not a problem and you may switch to your home county if you wish.
Please ask your parents to contact myself (John Upham) on firstname.lastname@example.org or (07976) 634053 or www.facebook.com/john.upham with your details and will be in touch.
HJCA attended the 2017 Annual General Meeting of the Southern Counties Chess Union (SCCU) on Sunday, July 10th in Colindale, North West London. After a short presentation by John Upham the meeting vote unanimously to welcome HJCA as a non-county member of the SCCU.
This membership allows HJCA to enter junior teams in various competitions against county and non-county teams.
The June 14th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Hampshire Chess Association (HCA) welcomed the initiative to restore the good fortunes of the HJCA and affiliated without dissent the HJCA.
HCA appointed Chris Priest to be HCA delegate to HJCA meetings. In turn HJCA will reciprocate as its first formal meeting which has yet to be organised.
HJCA (via John Upham) laid out progress to date and a high level summary of its plans for the forthcoming season and its long term plans.
Shortly after kick-starting HJCA we were approached by two anonymous benefactors who pledged funds to HJCA. From these funds and with the generous help of CHESS & Bridge HJCA was able to purchase twenty DGT 2010 timers plus twenty folding boards and twenty sets of pieces.
HJCA gratefully acknowledge these two anonymous benefactors.
The Hampshire Megafinal appropriately took place on St. George’s Day in Everest Community Academy, Basingstoke.

Congratulations to all the Hampshire junior and schools that took part in this stage of the competition.
Now to the Southern Gigafinal in Reading in late July.
The 2017 Hampshire Megafinal took place on April 23rd at Everest Community Academy organised by Amy Grieve.
A number of arbiters and board stewards made sure that the event ran smoothly and problem free.
A large number of Hampshire schools and chess clubs helped children to qualify and come together and hope to qualify for the Southern Gigafinal taking place in Reading during July 2017.
Results will appear here once they become available.
It is likely that the 2018 event will use Winchester College as a venue.
