CJCC had its first ever Saturday morning meeting this week. Below are a couple of photos from the younger half. No photos of the older half because I got distracted by the chess. 

Thank you to Madison and Alice for coming down to help out with the younger players.

Over the Board Junior Tournament

It is not just CJCC that is returning to over the board chess - some smaller tournaments are also popping up.

On Saturday 4th September, there is one hosted by the Essex Chess Association in Wanstead that I am helping to organise.

It should be a pleasant and social afternoon's chess.


Best Wishes

Day One - 28th July 2021

It was great to take Chelmsford Junior Chess Club back to Christ Church. We had 20 children in Year 5 and below making new friends and catching up with old ones. 

Thank you to Ben Bishop for returning to help out. It was also good to see Luoke who yesterday finished 2nd in the Under 10 British Online Chess Championships. We gave him a special trophy and looked at the finish of one of his games.


Aarushi and Janet are playing as a team. Amelia looks serious next to them.
