About us

The Association is a small committee of volunteers who organise and promote junior chess in the county. It runs tournaments and coaching days for players of all abilities from those who are new to competitive chess right through to those who play at County level. Players from the age of 7 through to those in their teens take part in the events and come from many schools and the junior clubs that exist in the county. The Association selects and runs County Under 11 and Under 9 teams.

There are also events for over 11s run on behalf of the Devon County Chess Association which includes the County Under-14 team.

We depend on volunteers to make our events run smoothly -- can you help us out one day?

British Chess Championships, Torquay 2019: Junior Bursaries

The annual British Chess Championships are returning to Devon for the first time since 2013  and will be staged at the English Riviera Centre in Torquay between 26th July and 4th August. There is a full range of Junior Championships which will be staged at different points during the Congress. The detailed schedule is as follows:

Quick poll!

 
1 Start 2 Complete
Most of our events are on Saturdays.

 

We run events usually with 6 rounds and all sections play the six rounds starting at the same time.  This usually means younger sections are waiting for U14s to finish before they play their next game.

We could either have a later start time for U9s or an earlier prizegiving.
