Welcome to the EJCA

The plan for the 2020/21 season

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus restrictions the EJCA Committee is currently not proposing to run any Essex Junior Chess Grand Prix events this season (2020/21). Unless the situation changes this means that no Essex Junior Championships will be won this season. We would encourage our junior players to continue to take advantage of the many online chess activities and expect to be back with over-the-board events next season. If you need further details of some of the online activities available, please contact

Essex Junior Chess Association seeks to promote the game of chess for players aged under 18 throughout the county of Essex, including the London Boroughs of Havering, Barking and Dagenham, Redbridge, Waltham Forest and Newham.

EJCA run tournaments and coaching sessions, and enter teams in national competition in several age ranges.
