Hampshire Megafinal 2017

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.
