New Hampshire Scholastic Chess


November  2021  UPDATE

Dear New Hampshire Scholastic Chess Players:

I am happy to announce the return of over the board Scholastic chess tournaments.

Our second tournament for the 2021-22 season will be played at the Jaffrey-Rindge Middle School on December 4th.   A four round Swiss G30d5 in three sections.  All students K-12 are welcome.

As you know, the pandemic had effectively halted over-the-board chess activity, as social distancing and chess tournaments generally don’t go hand-in-hand. However, the success of observing Covid protocols in schools (and other places) has led chess organizers to resume some chess events.

We live in a Covid world, meaning that anyone playing in this event (and frankly, any chess event) will be asked to abide by certain rules. There will be masks, hand-sanitizer, distanced tables.

Important! Read NHCA Covid Protocols »
