Now we are in December CJCC will be celebrating Christmas with a buffet and a Harry Potter chess theme on the 6th (older players) and 13th (younger players). We’ll meet back after New Year with the older group on 10th January.

Next term CJCC will take part in the Delancey UK Chess Challenge along with 1400 schools and junior clubs across the UK. All our players will take part in a 7 round tournament and get a chess badge. Depending on results they’ll have a chance to collect gold spots, chess mascots, furry pencils and other prizes. The best boy and girl in each school year will then move forward to the Essex Megafinal.

Last weekend many of our players took part in the Basildon Rapidplay event. This weekend sees the 3rd Essex Junior Chess Association Coaching Day at Writtle. Results of the tournament and future chess dates are at

The younger players were fighting this week to move up the ladder. Pictured below are Cody and Bella who are currently sharing the 8th rung. Alice and Jake share the top rung because of the help they gave the less experienced players this week.
Best Wishes
