Chess Success for Prep pupil 1

Many congratulations to Chelsea, who gained top prize in the under 14 category at the European Women Rapid and Blitz Chess Tournament

The European Women Rapid and Blitz Chess Championships were held in Monaco from the 21st October and Chelsea took first place in the Under 14 girl category.
The Rapid chess was played on the first and second day and Chelsea came first in the Under 12 category and was in 4th place for the Under 14’s.
The last day was blitz chess, where Chelsea won five games out of 13 and her combined score for the tournament saw her take first place overall in the Under 14 category. This a considerable feat as Chelsea is just 11 years old.
Chelsea regularly plays chess at the Prep school club and has also played in her age group for Scotland.
