The competition is free, but a voluntary contribution towards refreshments would always be gratefully received.

A team will be 6 players ranked as accurately as possible in chess playing ability from 1 to 6.

Please contact me by e-mail to confirm that you would like to take part this year (preferably as soon as possible, but by 19th January at the latest) or if you have any queries.
Depending on the number of teams we get, we could allow schools to bring a second team – please tell us in your reply whether you wish to do this.

We look forward to meeting you on the 26th January.
