Most of the Primary Matches will start this week – probably on this Friday, but venues like Pembroke Junior School and St Andrews and Pennington PS will take place on the Thursdays.
The dates are possibly:
There are 3 grades in the Primary Competitions – A, B and C. The A Grade has 5 players per team, while the B and C Grades have just 4 players in a team.
The Primary A Grade Matches are played using chess clocks with 45 minutes per player per game. primary B and C Matches are played with clocks using a time limit of 25 minutes per player.
The teams play in competitions in venues such as St Andrew’s and PAC and all competitions have 7 rounds, using either a Round Robin system, a Swiss System (where there are more than 8 teams) or a combination of both. At the end of the competitions there are B Finals and C Finals which has the leading teams from all the competitions come together for a big Allegro tournament. most of the competitions take place at 4pm and while most are on Fridays, some are on other days of the week.
