Well done to everyone who played, it was great to see lots of new, young players enjoying their chess and making friends. We look forward to welcoming you to more of the KJCA tournaments throughout the season. 

A big thank you to all the organisers and volunteers who ensured that the day ran smoothly and to Dulwich College for use of their school.

Please remember that KJCA is run by volunteers to ensure all our children enjoy local chess opportunities and tournaments. We are always looking for more help, particularly with catering, equipment and setting up tournaments. If you would like to get involved, please do contact, or speak to one of the helpers at the next event, and we can chat about how you can be part of our team.

The next KJCA tournament is GP6 on  Sunday 6th March 2016 at Somerhill School in Tonbridge.

To guarantee your place, please register early on the KJCA website. It is a big help with organisation and allows the day to start on time and run smoothly, go to the event page at
