African Adventures Junior Chess Competition

Sat 15th February 2020

In August 2020, Oldham Xtreme Explorers (including my daughters Hannah and Ella) will be travelling to Nakuru in Kenya to spend a week at a local school helping with building work, teaching new skills and sports coaching. This is a great opportunity for our young people to help some of the areas most disadvantaged children. This event is to raise funds for this educational trip.

  • Year 2 to 6 (those new to competitive chess) – 6 games
  • Year 7+ (those that have lapsed or do not play competitively) – 6 games
  • Year 7+ (those who play competitively already) – 5 games (on clocks 20min+10sec bonus)

Location: St. Thomas C of E Church Hall · Glebe Lane, Oldham OL1 4SJ
