The current standings for each age group in the 2018/19 season are below. Results from the four grand prix are counted. The top four players in each age group will be invited to the finals day, which will be in June 2019, where the Somerset Junior Chess champions will be decided for each age group.

We congratulate those who prove their consistency to finish in the top 4 in their age group, and also all players who show dedication and perseverance attending multiple events. We hope you continue to enjoy playing and improving your chess.

Consistent performance and appearance at the Somerset Junior Chess Grand Prix events can be rewarded with an invite to join the Somerset Junior Chess county team, and compete against other county teams in regional and national competitions.

A Schools League table has been introduced for the 2018/19 season. All points scored by every player in every round during the season will count towards your school total. At the end of the season, the school with the most points will win the new trophy. Who will be the first winner? Here’s the current school league standings.
