Canterbury Interschool Chess Competitions

Tēnā koutou

Greetings and welcome to our website!

We are a group of volunteers who for many decades have been passionately supporting the interschool chess competitions in Canterbury, New Zealand to run at a reasonable cost for students. We are very proud of our ongoing feedback which is our events are well organised, that our people provide a safe, supportive environment for students. The Term 2 competition we run is the only one in Canterbury where schools can proceed on to further New Zealand Chess Federation competitions.

In 2019, the Trust will be running the following events. Students can play in both the Term 2 and 3 competitions and also participate in workshops. We have a teacher on the Trust that can support you with setting up a club in your school. Our calendar below has more information and the draws after entries for all events close on . A waiting list will be in place for late entries after this date.

Thank you for checking out what we are offering and we look forward to seeing you at our events. If you have any queries or are interested in supporting us, please do email. We are also very keen to hear from students from Year 7 up who would be interested in training as arbiters.
