Novice Chess Tournaments | CHESS TOURNAMENTS FOR ALL AGES
Novice Tournaments are fun chess competitions suitable for every child who has been learning how to play chess for one term. Even if you've only been learning for a few weeks you will still enjoy this opportunity to put your skills to the test and meet a lot of other like-minded kids. Throughout the year we will be running divisions suitable for Novices at all of our RJ Shield events. These take place on the last Sunday of every month.
The Novice Tournaments are mass-participation events (in age-groups), designed to be an enjoyable first tournament experience for anyone learning about chess. Young players will be inspired by playing alongside our Training Squad kids battling to do well in the more advanced RJ Shield divisions.
