The training event is open to both graded and ungraded Primary and Secondary School pupils. It will involve a variety of coached exercises covering piece development, openings, tactical assessment, endings and game play. The Aberdeen Bridge Club is a new venue for NEJCA and we are grateful to the club for making the venue available to us. To maximise the training-time, please make every effort to register before the event, ideally by Monday 29th October [Entry Form].
To apply what has been learned at the training event, a short Play-As-You-Go type tournament has been arranged at the Mastrick Community Centre, Greenfern Road, Aberdeen AB16 6TR from 13.30 to 16.15 on Saturday 17th November. This will be a relatively informal event targeting beginners and intermediate players, with the games ungraded and played without clocks [Entry Form].
A further 7 events are scheduled for the season, catering for all junior ages and abilities. The format and venue of two of these is being finalised and will be posted shortly. Details of the confirmed future tournaments can be found on the Tournaments Page or by clicking on the link below.
