Home of the Kings!
UK Chess Challenge 2018
Over the last few weeks members have been playing each other to see how many will qualify to play in the Mega (Area) Final. The Mega Final will be held at Downlands School and, if previous years are to go by, will have over 400 competitors and is probably the largest Mega final in the country. Those that qualify from the Mega final will go on to the Giga (Regional) Final at Reading, then on to the Terra (national) Final.


 Tonight was the last round for qualification to the Mega Final. Out of 19 BHJC  players, 13 players qualified for their age groups. Players score points each week. The player with the most points is the BHJC Champion 2018.


Once again, Matthew Barton (above) was the winner and the Champion for 2018. Matthew has played for Sussex on a number of occasions over the years and has won many trophies to be proud of.


A full list of qualifiers and other news will be published soon. Next week is our last session this term, when we will have an Easter chocolate theme and players will receive their certificates and entry forms to the Mega Final.
