Summer Chess Camp 2020

This August the UK Chess Challenge is running a Summer Chess Camp for 3 weeks from Monday 10th August. All children welcome – we only ask that players know how to move the pieces.

Weekly tickets are on sale – players choose between a “competition ticket” (competitions take place from 1300-1500) or a “competition and training combo” which includes a training session in the morning 1000-1045. Players can attend as many or as few sessions during the week as they choose.

The training sessions are interactive video sessions with experienced coaches such as WFM Sarah Longson and following each session the children will receive further games and activities to keep them entertained and challenged. The afternoon competitions take place on lichess.org – players will be placed into “divisions” based on ability levels with prizes handed out at the end of the week.
