Hallfield chess continues, with children having access to chess lessons, chess videos, online matches and chess puzzles seven days a week during term time.
Our U11 ‘A’ team recently played two matches online: On 26th March, we had a six-player online double-round match against the current National Schools U11 Team Champions – King’s College Junior School, Wimbledon. The match was fantastically close with the result depending on the final game. King’s came out on top 6.5 – 5.5 in the end; a rematch has been scheduled!
Last week, we competed in a twelve-player online match against CGPS (one of the strongest chess schools in New York). It was a gruelling two-hour match which Hallfield won 33.5 – 12.5. Well done to all of our chess stars, our first international victory!
