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.

Success at Hampshire MegaFinal !

Young members of Frimley Junior Chess Club ventured East to Everest Community Academy in Basingstoke for the Hampshire Megafinal. The Megafinal follows the school / club stage in the world famous Delancey UK Schools Chess Challenge.

Henry Blin competed in the Under 7 section scoring an excellent three wins, just one short needed to qualify to the next stage,  the Gigafinal in Reading.

Sophia Blin entered the Under 8  section and scored a very impressive 4.5 points qualifying Sophia for the Gigafinal and title of Suprema !

Daniel Shek played in the Under 8 section and scored 5 wins out of six games securing the well earned title of Supremo. Daniel has just returned from Italy playing in the World Under 1700 Championships  impressing all and sundry with his style of chess.

James Love (Under 11) went one better scoring six wins out of six games ! “It is difficult to argue with that” was a comment from one of the event organisers and they were right. James very deservedly won the title of Supremo and qualifies for the Gigafinal in Reading during the month of July.

Frimley Junior Chess Club can be rightly proud of its young members and their continuing chess success !
