Over 1,000 children from 57 schools from across the country will be taking part in the qualifying rounds of the National School Championship – with the winners securing spaces to play at the Copper Box Arena on Saturday 12 May 2018.

Eight areas have applied to run competitions for the National Schools Championship.
