News from the Chess Master
Claires Court boys (and parents) made a very early start to the day on Saturday 11 May in order to wend their way to Bristol Grammar School. The boys had earned their place in the English Primary Schools' Chess Association National Semi-Finals.
We came up against some of the best U11 and U9 chess players in the country and showed we were up to the challenge, with wins against Twickenham Prep and Bristol Grammar School (our hosts).
Whilst we did not match our 2nd place from last year, the boys represented Claires Court admirably.
Very well done to Moksha Suriarachchi, , Emin Babusha, Louie White, Dominic Mayling, Kaniska Suriarachchi, Tom Avezbakiev, Ethan Olikara, Anthony Chan and Aman Singh.
Josh Sharma and Ishraj Samra were unable to play on the day but deserve congratulating for helping the teams reach Bristol!
Roll on next year.
Well done boys!
