News for juniors

Welcome to the March edition of our newsletter. We want to spread news of chess events for juniors in the region, so feel free to forward to friends and family to subscribe. League chess, congresses and rapids are in full swing, and we try to identify events local enough while being suitable for juniors.

This month we hold the Nottingham Congress, held over two days. An excellent opportunity to play a competition in the local area! See below.
