Calling all Hampshire Juniors !

Hampshire Junior Chess Wants You !
Hampshire Junior Chess Wants You !

If you are eighteen years old or younger, reside in Hampshire or go to a Hampshire LEA school then we want to hear from you !

Of course, we also hope you are a keen chess player !

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 :

  • EPSCA Under – 9
  • EPSCA Under – 11
  • EPSCA Under – 11 Girls
  • SCCU Under – 14

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 john.upham@zen.co.uk or (07976) 634053 or www.facebook.com/john.upham with your details and will be in touch.
