Middlesex League

About the League


The Middlesex League is an adult chess league. We play matches in evenings on weekdays - Monday to Thursday. Fixtures are both home and away, with home fixtures being played from 7.30-10pm at the Hendon Chess Club venue in Hoop Lane, Golders Green. Playing against adults is a vital way to improve your child's chess. We have a team playing currently in Division 3 against teams that are - on paper - stronger than our juniors. Despite this, there have been some spectacular wins and the team has performed beyond expectations. When we first joined the league, we were performing at an average grade of 99. Just 3 months later that average had increased to 138.


Requirements to Play


- You must be a member and attend Barnet Knights chess club. I understand that parents have a busy life transporting their children to various clubs etc., so this requirement is not very strict. To qualify to play you can attend the club as little as once a term (though obviously if you do this, then you will miss the top level training that occurs every week at the club)
- You must be graded over 100
