Partnership Announcement : Camberley Chess Club

Frimley Junior Chess Club is delighted to announcing a partnership with Camberley Chess Club with a reciprocal arrangement to benefit us.

FJCC and CCC are partners

As our members develop as chess players and increase their desire to play more chess and challenge more experienced players we recommend Camberley Chess Club as a thriving club which meets on Tuesday evenings locally.

Camberley Chess Club was established in 1972 and plays in two local leagues and we are pleased to have confirmed a partnership between our two clubs.

The partnership means we will recommend Camberley Chess Club to FJCC members who wish to take their chess further and play in evening league matches and attend club sessions.

In turn, Camberley Chess Club will recommend FJCC to any junior members who may wish to play other juniors of similar experience on a Sunday morning.

The ninth meeting of 2018 will take place on Sunday, April 8th at Frimley Village Hall from 9:30am until 12:30pm.

This week we start earlier at 9.30am and we will run a UK Chess Challenge tournament for all children who have not already qualified.

This is your chance to qualify to a MegaFinal of the UK Chess Challenge : there are many to chose from.

The hall owners have kindly allowed us to start at 9.30am so that we can fit in the tournament. Lots of fun prizes for all the children !

Hopefully there will be time for seven games for each child using a chess timer.

There will a trophy for the overall winner plus many other prizes for everyone taking part.

All the best,

John, Peter, Colin and Kim
