About the CCC

The Cambridgeshire Chess Championship (commonly known as the CCC) was formed in 2013 by a small group of teachers and parents to give children the chance to play regular competitive chess.

We are a non-profit organisation run by volunteers, whose aim is to bring together children and grown-ups from all over the county and provide free chess competition for everyone.

Just six schools took part in the first season, doubling the following year. We peaked at 30 teams and we always keen to welcome new entries. Please visit the Join page if you would like your school to take part.
