Yorkshire Affiliated to EPSCA


Through the White Rose Chess Academy, who have paid the necessary fee, Yorkshire has been made a member of the English Primary Schools Chess Association.


An initial objective is to enter a girls’ under-11 team in the final to be held on 23rd March 2019 at Grace Academy, Birmingham.  To this end a girls’ training day was held in York on 17/11/2018, and a follow-up is to take place on 12/01/2019 at same venue.


At present there are no organisers to run under-9 and under-11 teams, which were of course run for a number of years by Alan Coupe.
