Secondary School Chess Tournaments

Post by Neill Cooper » Tue Feb 28, 2012 9:49 pm

Following on my previous post on Secondary School Chess Leagues, in my role as ECF Asst manager of Secondary School Chess I am also looking to produce a list of inter-school tournaments that English secondary schools can enter. Those I know about are:

National Schools Tournament (about 70 secondary schools entered team(s) this year)
Birmingham DSCL U18/U14 rapid play - 5 schools played in the U18, about 10 have entered the U14 (to be played on Sat 10th March 2012)
Millfield International - not sure
EPSCA U18/U16/U14/U12 - not sure

More information about these events and any others that people know about would be useful. I could, for instance, circulate information about events to other interested schools, advertise such events on the ECF website, etc.
