Hallfield Crowned IAPS U11 & U13 Chess Champions (Again!)


Birmingham and District U13 Junior Chess League – Event 4 (Final)

The final event took place on 8th March with Hallfield’s U11 teams competing against the top U13 teams in Warwickshire and the West Midlands.

Our B team finished a creditable 13th (out of 17 teams). Aarav was the top scorer in our B team with 2.5/4 points against very strong Yr7 and Yr8 opposition. Alex was the tournament’s youngest competitor (Yr2) scoring an excellent win against Solihull B.

The shock of the day was caused by the Hallfield A team (which included two Yr4 players) who finished the event equal first after scoring wins against Bishop Vesey C, Archbishop Ilsley and King Edward VI Five Ways A. Our leading scorer was our star player on board one, Krish, who scored an amazing 4 wins from 4 games, including a win against the former Hallfield board 1 and England International player, Kai (Yr8).

Hallfield have now qualified for the national final of the U13 Junior Team Chess Challenge which takes place on Saturday 20th April.
