Train and Play Chess Day 3rd March

Yesterday was the British Chess Train and Play Day hosted by Brentwood Senior School. 115 juniors between 5 and 17 came along to enjoy two coaching session and a 4-round tournament within groups based on playing strength.

20 players from CJCC took part including some at their very first chess event. Well done to all the newcomers. Vivaan and Solan top-scored from these with 3/4. Congratulations also to Anna for winning the Best Girl prize in her section and Rishi (Year 3) for beating a student from Year 12.

Thanks are due to Brentwood School for all their support of the event (including a free packed lunch for every player!) and the EJCA for the loan of the equipment. Thanks also to all the volunteers who gave up their day to help everything run smoothly.

A report and more photos will appear in the blog at

Best Wishes
