Chess-Ed. hosts a number of different junior tournaments throughout the year. Tournaments are a great way for juniors to learn competition rules, etiquette, to make new chess friends and to put all their skills into practise.
On behalf of Chess Victoria, the state’s official chess organising body, we are running a number of interschool tournaments this year. These act as qualifiers for the State finals and semi-finals tournaments and are a school’s starting point on the path to the National Championships.
This year the Chess Victoria Semi-Finals and Finals tournaments will be held from Monday 21st October until Friday 25th October. Each semi-final will have 7 rounds where the players have 15 minutes each on the clock. Entry fee is $20 per player. Fees and confirmation of player participation should be done by October 16th.
