Due to the success of our pilot regional chess tournaments held in 2020, we are very excited to launch our fourth ISP Chess Tournament as one of the many International Learning Opportunities available to our students.

This year from September to February, ISP students aged 5 – 18 years old from around the world are invited to take part in the chess tournament. The free online competition brings students together in school teams to play fast chess with each other in a global tournament through

The ISP Chess Tournament will involve three rounds of one-hour chess tournaments: Regionals in November and December, Semi-finals in January, and the Final on February 7th, with two categories: Junior for under 12s and Senior for under 18s.

During the competition students will play fast-paced chess games – ‘3+2 Blitz games’ and an average of six to ten games in an hour in each round, with different students from other ISP schools.
