Team Chess Championships
Saturday 3rd February 2018
The Donhead U11 and U9 chess teams took to the boards in the National Schools team chess championships at Twickenham Prep on Saturday. For some of our boys, this was one of their first competitions, and a respectable final result was achieved by both teams. The U9 team were in in a good position going into the last round but narrowly missed out on qualifying for the semi-finals by one place, and the U11 team were only two places away from qualifying. We're sure the experience of this competition will give the players confidence to play again outside school. Well done to all the players in this tough event, and thank you for all the parental support!
