Interschools Championship

© New Zealand Chess Federation Inc 2022

The New Zealand Interschools Championship is organised by the New Zealand Chess Federation. The 2022 rules are available here (pdf document).

Use the menu to review the 2021, 2020, 2019 and 2018 calendars and the 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018 and 2017 results. Prior to 2017, the Interschools finals (only) results are available in the main NZCF results pages, accessible from the archives.

Note: the national interschool finals were not played in 2021. A notice dated 13th November 2021 said, "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. // Bob Smith, NZCF National Interschool Coordinator.
