1st H+H Brentwood Train and Play
Last Sunday (15th) was the 1st H+H Train and Play at
Brentwood. 50 children came
along to enjoy some coaching from International Masters Richard Pert and Adam
Hunt and myself. The sponsorship from H+H will allow Richard and me to bring in
a series of top guest coaches for the events.
Team Magnus Carlsen (managed by KEGS teacher Tim Worrall) won the team competition. One of the nice parts of the day is that everyone is in a team and plays three matches for their team against opponents of their own level in between the coaching sessions. CJCC were represented by 10 current or former players.

In February H+H are supporting two further events – a holiday chess camp in half-term on 13th and 14th February and the next Train and Play event on 26th February. The next Train and Play will include Grandmasters Matthew Sadler and Nick Pert as part of the coaching team.
