Join the CCC


State and independent schools in Cambridgeshire are welcome to join the CCC for free. All you need is a group of eight or nine children up to the age of 13 who are interested in playing. If you let us know that you wish to join before 1st August then you can start playing in the league from the Autumn Term later that year.


If you are a Headteacher or you run a chess club at a school and are interested in joining, please get in touch using the Contact page or by emailing


If you are the parent of a child whose school you feel should enter the league, please speak to someone at the school (e.g. the Headteacher or the person who runs the chess club) who can enter the school into the CCC.


When a school joins the CCC, they must appoint a representative who will accompany children to events and be the first point of contact for all communication. The representative also takes a seat on the CCC committee which meets after each event. All committee members have one vote each whenever decisions are made regarding the league.
