Win or Learn. One only loses a game if they do not learn.

EPSCA and the Wey Valley, Surrey

EPSCA is the English Primary Schools Chess Association.  It organises national schools tournaments and national area and county team competition for primary aged children.  More information can be found on the EPSCA website: www.epsca.org.uk

Wey Valley Chess – Surrey

Wey Valley Chess affiliates to EPSCA and each year we select children to represent us in their National Team Championships (Inter- Association Championships).    We select three squads of players; 24 under 11 girls, 32 under 11 girls and boys and 30 under 9 girls and boys from our U12 Championship which will take place 23rd January 2022.

Players selected for the squads will be contacted by email by 31/1/22 and are entitled to buy a Wey Valley shirt with our logo printed on it.  However, squad selection and buying a shirt does not mean playing in the team.

Following our Ramsay Cups Championships, which take place Sunday, 20th February, we select from the squads the playing teams, board order and reserves who will take part in the Zonal events and, if we qualify, also the Finals.

We will select the following numbers for each team:

Under 9 Mixed and U11 Girls:

  • 12 playing team members
  • 4 playing reserves
  • 4 further reserves (do not travel or play unless there in illness/ withdrawal from the above playing squad members)

Under 11 Mixed:

  • 20 playing team members
  • 4 playing reserves
  • 4 further reserves (do not travel or play unless there in illness/ withdrawal from the above playing squad members)

This year the EPSCA zones and finals will take place as below:
