Your AGE is your age at the START of the tournament.
These are among South Australiaʼs most prestigious junior events. They are a brilliant way to improve at chess. The players use clocks and are encouraged to record their moves. Some very good prizes.
The Chess Centre will be open from 8.00am on all days to allow parents to drop off youngsters before work.
We want to have 9 games in all these Championships and so will have 3 games each day.
Clocks will be used with 60 minutes +10 seconds per move per player each game.
We will have one game in the morning 9:30 – 12 noon with a lunch break (pizzas) at 12 noon. Then 2 games starting at 12:30pm and 3pm with all games finished by 5:30pm, most finished by 5pm. The sessions will all be finished by 5:30pm
Please note: These tournaments will only go ahead at the Chess Centre if there are no restrictions placed on them in SA. We will be following all the guidelines to try to ensure a Covid-Safe environment.
The format of the tournaments may change depending on numbers – if we have enough players, we may run separate events for just the Under 18 and Under 16 etc.
