UK Chess Challenge and January Chess

A tableful of furry mascots means the Delancey UK Chess Challenge is underway. Everyone will receive a chess badge and a gold spot for each win. As the children progress they will battle for a furry chess mascot, scorebook, certificate and a Golden Ticket to the Essex Megafinal.


We played Round One for the older players last Tuesday (10th) and will start off the younger players this week (17th). Don’t forget the club is closed the folowing Tuesday (24th) because I’m at chess competition with the KEGS Year 7 and 8 teams.

January is full of chess. KEGS are playing in two competitions. The Essex Junior Chess Association had a training day on 8th and have the next Grand Prix tournament on the 22nd. I’m also visiting Elm Green and Moulsham schools ahead of a primary school competition on the 4th February.

Yesterday (15th) saw the 1st H+H Train and Play day at Brentwood. Among the 50 children enjoying the team competition and coaching from International Masters Richard Pert and Adam Hunt (and me) were 10 CJCC players. Alexander and Stewart both scored 2/3 and were part of the winning team alongside Anna.

Best Wishes
