About this Event
Description

The event is designed for players of all abilities, from those who are just starting to learn the rules, to those who already play in tournaments.

To facilitate this, attending players will be split into sections based upon ability. Ability-targeted teaching sessions will be given by Grandmaster Nick Pert, concurrently with section-based tournament rounds.

The day will be structured in a similar way to a normal school day – parents are not required to stay, although there is a separate hall nearby which is available for use as a waiting area, as are several good nearby pubs!

Invitation to Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Jersey and Guernsey Juniors!

The event is for juniors who reside or go to school in Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Jersey or Guernsey. Please spread the word about this event – invite friends who are interested in learning about chess!
