Chess Rising Stars Summer Grand Prix

To help prepare our students to compete beyond Chess Rising Stars, we are delighted to announce the return of our Online Grand Prix.

This term, our free Grand Prix tournaments are on our chess team page. Chess Rising Stars students, parents, and friends are all welcome to take part.

Each tournament will have five rounds of 10+5. We have chosen this time control to mimic the playing conditions in the Junior Four Nations Chess League Online (J4NCLO).

Prizes will be awarded based on the number of entries and will be confirmed later. Your top 5 scores from the 6 Grand Prix events will count towards this.

The online chess tournaments will take place on the following Sundays at 4 pm (GMT) in the Summer Term 2024:

  • 5th May = Warm-Up
  • 12th May = Grand Prix 1
  • 19th May = Grand Prix 2
  • 26th May = Grand Prix 3 
  • 9th June = Grand Prix 4
  • 16th June = Grand Prix 5
  • 23th June = Grand Prix 6

To ensure the integrity of the Chess Rising Stars Online Grand Prix tournaments, we will use the lichess cheat detection system alongside the observation and judgment of our experienced coaching team.

The Chess Rising Stars London Academy team hopes to see many of you there.
