At the time of writing (early October), we are fast running into the busiest time of the year for the juniors. The London Junior Chess Championships, held before and/or Christmas, is arguably the most prestigious junior event in Britain, ahead even of the British Champions, for the younger age groups anyway. An extra piece good news is the championships are very local for this club.

The events for this tournament is so popular that at under 12s and younger players, they  would need to achieve good scores in a qualifying event. The next local event is the Middlesex qualifier on 27th October. This is usually at Harrow, but at the moment entry forms have not yet been published. Look closely at the website. Highly recommended. 

If children really hit the tournament bug, there are also various events slightly further afield; Borehamwood, Hampstead, Shenley, Hampstead again (intense battles in the Garden Suburb), and then St Albans.

Good luck to anyone and everyone who takes part!
