Junior Team Challenge 2019/20

This event, due to be hosted at Scarborough College, has been postponed owing to the current health crisis. Scarborough College is a boarding school, and as such is particularly susceptible to this type of infection. The head of the school has taken this decision with great sadness, and we will be working closely with the school to rearrange this event — Phill Beckett

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.
