Claires Court Jubilee Tree Canopy Unveiled

Saturday saw Claires Court Junior Boys hosting an over-the-board chess tournament for the first time in a long time, and it was warming to see so many competitors overcoming Covid, the weather and a shortage of petrol to take part.
To add to the local players, a minibus of players turned up from Uxbridge; two of these played well enough to secure second and third place in the top section, but they were all beaten by Claires Court old boy Moksha S. Well done, Moksha!

 Brother to Moksha, Kanishka flew the flag for CCJB in a strong group, benefitting from the experience of getting face to face with competition once more. Well done to both the brothers!
The next tournament is on Saturday 30 October.
Rabbit Awards
