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 firstname.lastname@example.org
