Team chess

Here is a selection of team events you might be interested in. For these competitions, you don’t have to organise the team yourself, you simply get in touch and let the captain know you are interested.

Under 9 & Under 11 County teams
This allows you to be part of a team and compete against players representing other parts of the country. There are three separate teams — Under 9, Under 11 and Girls under 11. The Under 9 and Under 11 competitions start with a regional heat (also called a zone), then a national final. The Girls just have the national final. Each of the zones and finals are one day competitions, played on a Saturday between March and May each year.
