Our online tournaments have been very successful and allowed us to keep kids engaged in chess and connected during the pandemic. Through these tournaments, our youth have also had the opportunity to play with players from other provinces.
Building on the success of our arena style tournaments, we will now switch to hosting Swiss Style biweekly tournaments in the summer. This is the same system that is used in our in-person events, where you will be paired with another player of similar score after every game in the round is completed.
Note that players interested in playing in these tournaments will need to join Team Nova Scotia. See details below:
