We are extremely proud of the achievements of our resident junior chess club.
Desert Penguins Chess Club took part in the Delancey Schools UK Chess Challenge, the largest UK junior chess competition.
The event has been held annually since 1996 and has since grown into the largest children's chess tournament in the world, please refer to the link.
This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the event and so it was not only held for individual children, but also as a club Championship with 100 Junior Chess Clubs and more than 500 children from all parts of the UK participating.
Desert Penguins Chess Club has won this year’s edition, attaining the title of The Best Junior Chess Club in the UK. It is a very convincing and an important accolade for the Club.

The club always welcomes new members. Desert Penguins will resume Spring Term at Barnes Sports Club on 10th of January 2022. You can download the information leaflet and registration form here.
