Following a period of great uncertainty, it has been confirmed that the UK Chess Challenge has been saved.
The new organisers are Sarah and Alex Longson. Sarah won the UK Chess Challenge back in 1996.
Schools should receive their entry forms very soon and it is hoped the tournament will be able to run to the normal schedule from the Spring term onwards.
We have confirmed our support for the new organisers and also our provisional interest in hosting a Megafinal on Teesside, just as we did this year.
Further updates will follow.
