Budding Chess Masters!

Our Under 7 chess team of Zach, Zen, Oliver and John has achieved impressive results in two competitions.

In the UK Schools Chess Challenge, they qualified for the Gigafinal in Twickenham in July, with Zen winning for his age group at the Megafinal.

Secondly, the boys beat off competition from six schools to become Sussex Under 7 Chess Champions; it is a team trophy awarded as they all played so well. In the individual competitions, Zen and John won four out of their five matches and were jointly awarded 4th place. Their efforts were rewarded with superb trophies and rosettes.

It’s the first time that Lancing Prep Worthing (or its predecessor, Broadwater Manor School) has won this accolade and the quality of the competition was extremely high. We are so proud of what the boys achieved and their sportsmanship – shaking hands before and after every match – was commendable.
