Do you like playing chess? Would you like to join a successful chess team? Were you born after 31 August 2006? Do you want to play for the Berkshire Under 11 Chess Team? Were you born after 31 August 2008? Do you want to play for the Berkshire Under 9 Chess Team? We also run a girls Under 11 team, and there is a separate section at the trial for this team.
If your answer was “yes” to either of the above questions then you are invited to a Chess Tournament on the above date. This event will be used as the initial basis to select the 2017/2018 Berkshire Under 9, Under 11, and Under 11 Girls Squads.
The county teams need large squads of players (at least 24 for the U11 squad for instance) – so if you’re interested in representing your county at exciting and enjoyable team events - have a go!
Format: 6 rounds (minimum) Swiss; 25 minutes for each player for all moves; please arrive at 11:30am for the 12:00 noon start.
There will be trophies to keep for those finishing in the first three places and certificates for all competitors. If you would like to participate in the trial, please return the slip on the back.
The entry fee is £5 for entries received by 5th October (£2 extra for late entries including on the day).
