To all participants, parents, mentors and enthusiasts,
At last, we have good news to report! After two years of COVID we feared we couldn't find a suitable location for the ONJK 2022. But finally we succeeded! The ONJK 2022 will be held from 8 - 13 august at the Diekmanhal, Enschede. We are very pleased the spacious playing hall and also with the many entertainment facilities surrounding the hall. On walking distance you'll find subtropical swim paradise Aquadrome, indoor childrens play paradise Ballorig, Glowgolf, Arque climbing centrum and more. Looking for more entertainment apart from chess? Funzone Enschede is nearby or even the Cube boulderhal. The city centre of Enschede is a 20 minutes walk from the Diekmanhal.
At the moment, we are busy updating our website. As always, registration will be digital, and we're doing our very best to open registration as soon as possible. Till then, you can start preparing for the tournament - and your vacation!

Rate of play
In the A to C groups and U25-group, the rate of play is 1.5 hours plus an increment of 30 seconds for each separate move from the beginning of the match move.
In the D- and E-group, the rate of play is 40 minutes plus an increment of 30 seconds for each separate move from the beginning of the match.
In the F-, G- and H- group, the rate of play will be 25 minutes plus an increment of 10 seconds for each separate move from the beginning of the match. This goes for both the F-, G- and H- tournament as well as the joint FGH-tournament.
The playing schedule for the A to C groups is unchanged from previous years. These groups each play 9 rounds from August 8rd to August 13th.
The playing schedule for the U25-group will mostly follow the A to C groups' schedule. Two morning rounds (to be decided which) will be left out for the U25-group
The D- and E-group will be playing 13 rounds.
For the F-, G- and H- group, the tournament is split into two parts:
- a nine round tournament from Monday 8th to Wednesday 10th where all participants play in their own age group (F-, G- and H-group). If less than 20 participants enrol in either the G- or H-group, we'll probably combine both groups.
- another nine round tournament from Thursday 11th to Saturday 13th where all participants play in one joint FGH-group. If more than 70 participants enrol, we'll probably split this group in two;
Participants are free to participate in one of these tournaments, or both. Also, you may decide up to August 10th to enrol for the second tournament!
The exact schedules will be published at a later date.
There is a cash price and a trophy for the best three in each tournament, as you can see in the schedule below. In addition, all participants in the D-, E-, F-, G- en H-group will get a nice little prize no matter how they perform.
