Inaugural Orpington Junior Chess Tournament and Coaching Day

Your children are warmly invited to the first Orpington Junior Chess Tournament and Coaching day.


Tuesday April 4th. It will run from 9.30am sharp, with registration from 9 - 9.15am, until 4pm.


St John's United Reform Church, Lynwood Gr, Bancroft Gardens, Orpington, BR6 0BG


Four rounds of chess and two hours of coaching in small groups.
If there are sufficient entries, there will be book and trophy prizes, as well as a prize for the best school or club.

The coaching will be targeted at players from beginner to those graded 130 but we would not recommend entry for those who cannot checkmate with a king and queen against a lone king. Those unsure are welcome to come to Petts Wood and Orpington junior club to see if this tournament would be appropriate.

The entry fee is £24, but for those entering before March 17th there is an early-bird discount of £5. Entries after 27th March may incur a late entry fee. We ask that parents enter as soon as possible so that we have an idea of numbers, which will be limited.

All children must be supervised during breaks.


A selection of great value home-made cakes, sandwiches and soups will be provided by a bona-fide (though sadly not Michelin-starred) chef.


Entry is by email to and will not be confirmed until payment is received by bank transfer.

To enter please email with the subject “Orpington Junior Chess Tournament Entry”:
Child’s name:
Grade (if applicable):
Institute of chess level completed/working towards (if applicable):
I will then send payment details and your place will be confirmed on payment.
By entering you agree for the results and entries to be posted on this website.
