Junior Team Challenge 2019/20

The Junior Team challenge is aimed at Year 7 and Year 8. Teams will consist of four players (reserves are allowed) and at least one member of each team must be year 7 or 8.

There will be a series of regional finals, with the winner and possibly the runner-up (if there is a large qualifying event) qualifying for the final on Sunday 29th March 2020

The typical schedule is a team event using a Swiss system (unless there are a low number of entrants, in which case teams may play an all-play-all competition). Each team plays four rounds. Every point scored will count towards the team total e.g. a team winning 3-1 would score three points, and the losing team would score one point. All schools can enter two teams, with the host team having the option of a third team in order to have an even number of teams.

The regional events are designed so that they can be completed in an afternoon, although a regional event could be held as a one-day event, according to the wishes of the host school.

This year we have a new venue for the final! We are grateful to Scarborough College, who have offered to host the final for us.
