This team is for junior members of Watford Chess Club and a limited number of other juniors known to members of the club. Besides team events - see below - it's available for both friendly and competitive games between members.

The latest sessions of the Junior 4 Nations Chess League and the main 4NCL have now ended and, until these events restart in August, Watford Juniors teams are competing fortnightly in both the Five Counties Online League and the Hillingdon & District Online League.
In each event, each round consists of a single classical game - all moves in 45 minutes but with 15-second increments - and the games are rated by the English Chess Federation. Opposition sometimes consists of other junior teams, sometimes of adult teams. If interested in taking part, please contact [or ask your parents to contact]
Watford Juniors also play in other online competitions including the World 2020 Chess League - rapidplay chess against mainly overseas opposition - and have friendly matches against other teams. Much more information at

As from 26 April, Watford Juniors are also holding face-to-face meetings [at a temporary venue in central Watford until such time as West Herts again becomes available] each Monday from 6 until 9. If interested in attending, please use the email address given above.

Location: Hertfordshire and adjacent areas of Beds, Bucks and NW London
