SW Herts Primary Schools League: Day 2

28/02/2020 @ 3:45 pm - 5:40 pm


Cell Barnes Lane, St Albans, Herts. AL1 5QJ


11th November, 2019.

Dear Colleagues,

The South-West Herts Chess Tournament enters its 42nd year. We are contacting you with details of this year’s competition and hoping that your school will enter. Last year 14 school teams took part.

Each school will play 6 rounds over 3 sessions, all to be played at Cunningham Hill Junior School on the following dates:-

Friday 31st January 2020

Friday 28th February 2020

Friday 27th March 2020.

Matches to start at 3.45 pm (or as soon after as possible). Allowing 45 minutes per game, we should be finished by 5.40 pm on each day. Cunningham Hill Junior School will provide refreshments, Competition Match Play Rules and score sheets.

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

The tournament is an HSCA (Hertfordshire Schools Chess Association) event. This year, there is an entry fee of £10 per team – this will cover the cost of refreshments, medals for members of the winning teams and any other expenses. Please bring the entry fee with you in January (cheques payable to “HSCA”) – many thanks.

Please contact me by e-mail to confirm that you would like to take part this year (preferably as soon as possible, but by 10th 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 31st January.

Please do not park in the grounds of Cunningham Infant School.

Best wishes from the competition organiser:-
