Students (and Teachers!) from all Years are welcome to turn up and have the chance to rank up the League Ladder. No need to bring your own chess set - we’ve got enough boards and pieces for everyone. See you there!


Chess Club Rules

1) A player may challenge any other player up to 3 places higher.

2) Once a challenge has been made, neither the challenger nor the player who has been challenged can make or receive other challenges until the match has been played.

3) If the challenger wins the match, he or she will move to the place previously occupied by the player that was challenged. The player that was challenged and any players in between will each move down a place.

4) Don't take the ladder too seriously. Have fun!
