Players need to be familiar with all rules and use of chess clocks.

Entries are subject to venue capacity. If entries exceed capacity, we reserve the right to reduce the number of entries (schools will be advised if this is the case after entries close). We also reserve the right to combine age groups if entry levels are low (again, schools will be notified).

Schools are welcome to enter teams into one, two or all grades but must provide a teacher to supervise if entering more than THREE teams.

Home school and composite teams are unable to be accepted as per the NZCF interschool rules.

Invoicing will be after the event based on team attendance on the day.
