UKCC - All Systems Go
It's all systems go here on Teesside as this week we started the Delancey UK Chess Challenge in all of our chess schools.
All of our pupils - from Year 2s to Year 6s - will now go through seven rounds of tough tournament action as they battle away against each other to try and become the champions of their class.
Some will even qualify for the Teesside Megafinal and perhaps will go all the way to Manchester Gigafinal. Can anyone from Teesside make it to the Terafinal (the final phase of the event) this year...!?
This is the 23rd UK Chess Challenge, which is recognised as the world's largest chess competition. 40,000 children participated last year.
If your school has yet to enter the competition there is still time to do so, but head over to the official website without delay or risk missing out on this fantastic opportunity.
