Check Mates!

It was a busy weekend for our chess stars. On Friday, we sent a team of four to compete against other local schools in the Birmingham and District Chess League Rapidplay. This event is mostly aimed at Senior Schools and indeed our main opposition was King Edward’s School ‘A’ team and King Edward’s V1 Camp Hill ‘A’ team. Despite the massive age differential, our four players performed magnificently and were crowned champions after winning all five of their matches including wins over their two main rivals. The sight of our young stars defeating Sixth Formers is always special. Felix was our top hitter scoring four wins and one draw from five games.

On Saturday, a number of Hallfield players represented Warwickshire in the Midland County Championships. They helped Warwickshire come out winners in all age sections and our top scorers were Rohan and Zain for the U11s and Farhaan (U9) who each won all three of their games. Well done indeed to all the pupils involved!
