Maidenhead Junior Club Girls Tournament
Saturday, January 14
In our continuing campaign to encourage more girls to play chess within Berkshire, we have held a number of girls only events or tournament sections this season with some success. The latest was held at the monthly Maidenhead Junior Club tournament. Saturday morning is not always the easiest time for some potential players to make, but 9 girls turned up and played 4 competitive rounds with everyone scoring points "over the board".
The eventual first and second place girls fought out a draw in round 2, but Louise Head went on to take full points from her next two matches, whilst Florence Mitchell remained unbeaten, but conceded a draw in the final round to claim second place.
