Junior Chess Home
Dorset Junior Chess is a not for profit activity run by volunteers from the B&DCL and DCCA in order to promote and popularise chess amongst school age children in the Bournemouth and Dorset area.
It has a Junior Chess Coordinator, Nikki Forster, to help develop youngsters in the county. Nikki has great enthusiasm and a wealth of experience in this area, having organised junior events over a number of years. In so doing she helped her own son become a county level player.
She can be contacted at [email protected] for general advice or to sign up for her regular newsletters.
Once they know the rules juniors will also benefit from joining a club where they can learn from more experienced players. Local clubs welcome juniors, though most ask that young juniors are accompanied by an adult. Please consult the clubs’ websites for more details.
