St Catherine’s hosts English Chess Federation Girls’ Championship Semi Final
St Catherine’s School welcomed girls from a wealth of schools across the country for the Annual English Chess Federation Girls’ Championship Semi Final on Sunday 17th January 2016
St Catherine’s School was delighted to sponsor and host this year’s ECF National Schools Girls’ Under 19 and U11 Chess Championships southern semi-final. The tournament featured a wide range of schools and 156 girls in total took part, a new record.
It was great to have a wide range of ability levels unified by their love of chess and we would like to thank all the GSA schools that entered on this occasion, as well as the English Chess Federation for organising the event.
We have sought to improve the experience for everyone over the last three years and we are looking forward to an increase in entries in 2017.
In the meantime, we look forward to the finals, which will take place at St Catherine’s School in Bramley in April.
