UK Chess Challenge

UK Chess Challenge (UKCC) is the largest chess competition in the UK – for young players of all ages and abilities. It is one of the most prestigious junior chess events in the world.

This year the UKCC Megafinal will be held in Essex. It will take place at Colchester Town Hall on Sunday, 21 May 2023. The event is supported by Essex Junior Chess Association.

 It's an excellent opportunity for Essex junior players to qualify for the later stages without travelling to other counties. Besides qualifications, there will be trophies and medals to win for each age year group.
