We started term time junior training sessions at Mycenae House in April 2018 following the suggestion of a parent, as many primary schools do not have a chess club. The sessions are aimed at children relatively new to chess and have been well attended.
Junior training starts at 6:30pm and lasts one hour, roughly 30 minutes instruction followed by 30 minutes playing chess. We charge £5 per child per session.
The last session before summer holidays is Monday 9th July and will restart on Monday 10th September 2018.
During the summer break the children are welcome to come to normal club nights on Mondays, which start at 7:00pm. These will be free of charge.
