Lothian Junior Championships

The individual championships are open to children living in Lothians and the Borders.

As well as the full day events, Lothian Junior Chess are also running an 'Taster Tournament'. This will be a miniature version of the main event, with just three rounds of games from 1pm. This is targeted at younger children and who feel that to start straight into a six round event might be too big a first step, or whose parents might find it difficult to be tied up for the whole day. Entry for the taster is limited to P5 and under, and the players should not yet have a grading and should have played less than 8 graded matches.

For everyone else - the event starts at 9:30am, with prize giving ending around 4:15pm.

For this event we are using online entries - this should ease congestion at the registration desk. You need to select your tickets, enter your payment details to pay and then provide information about the child (or children!) that you have entered.

Late entries (after 11pm on Monday the 27th of November) is £10.
