The Crowborough Chess Club qualifying competition for the UK Chess Challenge Mega-Final was completed last week.

PDF of the cross table of the games played in the last 10 weeks.

All the Age Group winners and qualifiers should now enter one of the Mega-Finals by following the link https://www.delanceyukschoolschesschallenge.com please enter early as they do fill up.

We recommend that you enter the Sussex Mega-Final (in Hassocks) where we will have a classroom booked specifically for Crowborough Chess Club in which you and your children can park for the day away from the hubbub and where I will be available to review chess games etc.

Please ensure that you put Crowborough Chess Club as your School so that you will avoid playing each other in the Mega-Final.
