Colchester Junior Chess Club is created to encourage and help young people to play and learn chess in an enjoyable and safe environment. This will give young players an opportunity to make new chess-playing friends while being coach with their knowledge and skills in playing chess. The purpose of the Blog is to promote Colchester Junior Chess Club in Colchester and its surrounding areas and junior chess in Essex.
Thank you so much for all the support last term.
And just to remind you that the club will not be open during school holidays, so we will not be open this week. We will commence back on the 6th of September 2018.

In behalf of Colchester Junior Chess Club,
The club will be close this coming Thursday 17th of May due to unprecedented personal reason, apologies for any inconvenience. We will resume the session on the 24th of May Thursday, of which I hope to see you all.
Congratulations to Louis Thomas for winning the top of the Delancey challenge in the club for this year and for the others who were able to qualify for the megafinal. Also, well done to everyone who participated in the challenge.
Well done to all who participated with the friendly matched last Thursday 8th of March. Thank you Richard O'Brien (Engaines Primary School) for hosting the matched and for providing complimentaries to everyone. A big thank you to John Lambert and Melvin Steel for doing all the pairings.
Our top 5 boards ( Asci, Zoe, Louis, Dominique and Mae) were all undefeated for both rounds and the other boards( Rezin, Eric, Malachi, Charlotte, Yazan, and Jana) have either won their games or made their games very difficult for their opponents to win. Overall, everyone seems to have enjoyed the experience.
Thank you parents and grandparents for bringing your children and grandchildren at the venue. Also, I want to acknowledge the presence of Clive Bellinger, secretary of Colchester Chess Club, who continues to support our juniors in the club.
In behalf of all the volunteers of Colchester Junior Chess Club,
