We had an excellent event at Eton College on Sunday, with 100 children taking part. We also held our first fun parents section, which saw beginners and experienced players alike take to the board to get a taste of their children's tournament experience. Abilities ranged from tournament first-timers through to county players and England squad members. Coaches for the day were Nick Pert, Erika Orsagova, Ken Coates and John Upham. Assisting in the playing hall were Tery Kotsiopolous and Jocelyn Kirby.
Congratulations to all who took part, with a special mention going to our section winners:
U18 Winner - Dmitry Minko
U11 Winner - Rohan Pal
Improvers Winner - Joshua Hicks
Parents Winner - Tony Stewart
An additional mention goes to William Joseph Lee for a great performance in the fun blitz games that were held vs the coaches inbetween rounds.
Future tournaments will be available to book soon - save the date!
