New: Because of the COVID pandemic, no NEJCA over the board competitions have been scheduled for the coming season and I expect games played over the board may not be able to take place for some time. Whilst I am sure this is disappointing news, on-line play and tournaments have emerged, providing opportunities to maintain and develop player’s chess skills during these difficult times. For further details see below. The NEJCA Committee will evaluate the situation again in September. Contact details click HERE
With grateful thanks to all our sponsors, both corporate and individual, who make the running of these events possible
