NZCF National Interschools Finals 2021 CANCELLED.

Official Entry Form.

NZCF Council has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s national interschool finals. The finals were due to be held in Auckland in late December, after the covid pandemic forced their postponement from September. However holding the competition has become virtually impossible in view of the continuing uncertainty about Auckland’s covid level status and the rules regarding gatherings of vaccinated and unvaccinated people. My apologies; for the sake of thousands of keen young chess players around the country I can only hope that we can return to some normality next year.
