This is the web site of the Norfolk County Chess Association it is intended to provide useful information to members of the NCCA and to people who are interested in playing chess in the County of Norfolk. It is linked to the county magazine En Passant web-site though to get the real value of this super magazine you may be better to subscribe.
The Object of the NCCA is to organise, encourage and promote adult and junior chess throughout Norfolk, including appropriate surrounding areas, and to represent players and clubs from that area by affiliating to the English Chess Federation (ECF) and the East Anglian Chess Union (EACU). The Associations consitution is available here.
We are delighted to announce that thanks to generous sponsorship by Great Yarmouth Borough Council the Great Yarmouth Chess Congress will once again be held in the Town Hall. Those who attended last year will be aware that this is a magnificent venue.
Also we have a new sponsor, Pasta Foods, to complement our other sponsors, BDO, TMS Media and Town Centre Partnerships. With our additional funds we have been able to increase the prize fund which, subject to entries, will be around £1,700. We are grateful to our sponsors for their support, without which we could not hold such an event.
Our County sides have done well in recent years. The Captains will usually welcome new faces and you can play for the County at several different levels.
