Over 70 budding chess players will be seen in action at the under-7 and sub-junior district chess championship to be held at JRD Sports Complex in Jamshedpur from January 25 to 27.

The opening round will be played after the inauguration of the event, being organised by East Singhbhum District Chess Association. Total rounds to be played will be announced at the time of inauguration, said district body functionary Jayant Bhuyan.

The 16-member district team will comprise four boys and as many girls in the under-15 squad, two boys and two girls in the under-13 squad and same number of boys and girls for under-7.
