Chess teams take home silver!

Posted: 7th February 2017

On Saturday 4th February, no fewer than three U9 and three U11 teams (comprising 36 boys; far more than any other school) travelled to Eltham College School to compete in the EPSCA zonal event. For many this was their first opportunity to represent the school in tournament chess, with the hope of progressing some teams to the Semi-Final stage at Camber Sands Pontins in May.

The best chess schools traditionally hail from the London area and this was an extremely tough competition. There were certainly no easy games to be found but ultimately our goal was achieved as two U9 and two U11 teams performed very well and will be travelling to Camber. Unfortunately the U11 ‘A’ team were pipped to the gold medal by the home team but the boys did very well in winning silver.

Congratulations to all involved in a great experience and a wonderful team atmosphere – we all look forward to the challenge ahead.
