Welcome to the Knights of Gidea Park Junior Chess Club,we have only been a club since January 2011.
This has not stopped the players from entering their first tournament,an Essex junior grand prix event held at South woodham Ferrers.
Club members entered the under 9 and under 11 sections.
In the under 9 section Niall finished in 1st place with 6 out of 6 a fantasic performance.
Also in this section Sreeram had an excellent first tournament finishing 4th= and winning the BEST NEWCOMER trophy.
In the under 11 section Theo 7th=,James 8th= and Aiden 9th= all first timers in tournaments played very well and all won some games.

  2. Excellent Tution. I used to beat Theo every game without much effort, after 3 visits to the Chess club and the only way I get a win now is to wait until he is really, really tired, and there's something he wants to watch on TV.....Tactics. Knights of Gidea Park Rock.

  3. Thank you Peter for you kind words.
    The players take things onboard and try to use them,plus the tournament experience is helping.
