Open Junior Evening 2019

Introducing the second year of our open junior evening at Poole Chess Club, which will take place on Thursday 11th July at 7:15.

It is our intention to give juniors/students the opportunity to play chess in a local chess club away from a school environment with and against club members to have an evening of competitive and enjoyable chess.

Whilst chess is inherently serious during each game, and we all know the benefit of playing it – especially for juniors/students – we try to make our environment a friendly and welcoming place to visit. We welcome all chess players of any standard, and pride ourselves on being truly international and open to all.

On the night, you will be playing one club member in a casual game on the clock and hopefully will be given some analysis of the game by your opponent.

In the 2nd round you will be playing a fun ‘brain and hand’ game, which is a doubles game with a partner working together to win. These games will be 10 minutes each.

It is our hope and intention that this introductory event will encourage you to come and join Poole Chess Club’s junior section. The cost is £5 per annum.

We start our 2019/20 season at the end of September and it runs through to May the following year. If you join the club we would like and suggest you play in the Bacchus league (6th division), which will count for grading, and games will have limited time controls (1 hour each). This competition has been formed to encourage new and less experienced players to play chess and provide an opportunity to play in an informal but competitive league and so is a good opportunity to develop your chess skills. There is no promotion or relegation so it is intended that all games are played in an enjoyable spirit.
