January Jamboree Chess Tournaments

January 24 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

January Jamboree – tournaments on Sunday afternoons

The January Jamboree  tournaments are a new innovation by the SA Chess Association to see if chess will be popular on Sunday afternoons at the Chess Centre – and it certainly appears to be!

The first Sunday, 10th January, attracted 38 players on a super-hot day.

The second Sunday 53!!

Today is the last for January .. but probably many more .. 

Sunday 24 January 2021 from 1.30pm to 4.00pm

Please note – the temperature is predicted to be 41C which means we will cancel this event and put on the 31st January – please check here for an update!

Chess Centre, Ranelagh St Adelaide
$10 per player per Sunday
4 or 5 rounds (15 mins + 2 secs)
Small cash prizes

FOUR TOURNAMENTS WILL BE RUN CONCURRENTLY EACH SUNDAY, but this may change slightly depending on the numbers – the first afternoon saw the Open and Returnees combined and the Beginners and Juniors combined – it all worked out great!

  • OPEN
  • JUNIOR (under 18)
  • RETURNEES: someone taught you the moves years ago, maybe you played at school, but you can’t remember the last time you touched a piece. This should be the interesting one!

To enter, simply turn up at the Chess Centre around 1pm or text Alan Goldsmith on 0401 672 481 or email agoldsmith@internode.on.net
