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

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 !
