Yes2Chess - part 2

The Yes2Chess initiative was outlined here a few weeks ago.   Now, an excellent short video has been developed, which is well worth watching.

To date, over 100 schools have signed up to Yes2Chess.

Here's a link to the video.


  1. Engaines Primary at Little Clacton with John Lambert are one of the 100, any schools from Suffolk there ?

  2. None that I know of, unless anyone knows different...
    John - anyone from 'your' school playing in the Bury Junior Congress next Sunday?

  3. One from Clacton but not Engaines, see email. Engaines have a friendly Yes2chess match with a Newcastle primary school by way of he introductory process, after half term break

  4. HI Bob,

    Perhaps this is a start to rectify the apparent lack of young people in the chess world.

    Anything I can do to help?

    Perhaps I could put together a mail or e-mail shot to local schools??

    1. I think that would be a great start, and potentially good for the Stowmarket club. Let me know how it goes.
