Welcome to the Somerset Junior Chess Grand Prix 2017/18. We hope this website will provide a useful place to find out everything that is going on.

The third Grand Prix event of the season is at High Ham Primary School, and will take place on Sunday 10th December 2017. Entries will open soon.

You’ll find details of all other confirmed dates in the events calendar. We’ve also included county team dates and will add any other notable chess tournaments in here as well.

There will be six grand prix events in the 2017/18 season, culminating with a grand prix finals day in June 2018. Find out more.

The Wyvern Chess Company Ltd is a company that has been started by Wayne and Martin, who are parent volunteers, in order to run the Somerset Junior Chess Grand prix events and allow the facility to take online payments, supported by the website for information. All the profits from these events, as per the previous set up, will go to Somerset Junior Chess to support the improvement of the county’s junior chess players and fund the county teams. All the accounts from The Wyvern Chess Company Ltd. will be totally transparent to Somerset Junior Chess. We hope this streamlining and the joined up Somerset Junior Grand Prix events will generate more funds for the county and allow it to continue to grow. The strength in the county set up lies with the volunteers, and will continue to, and we are always looking for help at the events and during the season – please contact Wayne, Martin or Chris if you are interested in helping.
