Dorset County Chess Association is delighted that Bournemouth School for Girls will be hosting this year’s Dorset County Junior Chess Championship and invites all chess players in school years 3 to 13 inclusive to come along for the annual junior chess championship.

Whether you are a relative novice or a much more experienced player we would love to see you. This is not a knockout competition so you are guaranteed to play 6 rounds of chess against children in your age groups. Doors open at 9.30 a.m and we intend to have a prompt start by latest 10.00 am. Prize-giving will be at around 4.30 p.m

Championship trophies will be awarded to various age groups and medals will also be awarded. To be eligible for the county trophies you must reside in or attend schools in Dorset, but players from areas or schools outside Dorset are welcome to compete for medals.
