Girls' Chess Championship 2022-23
On Sunday 9th October 2 teams of 3 girls from Kendrick competed in the Girls’ Chess Championship Tournament held at St Catherine’s School, Bramley. Started in 2014, this tournament is a dynamic chess competition for young female players. It was a national event where schools from all over the country came together and put their skills to the test.
All teams played 5 rounds against other competing teams, with a time control of 20 minutes plus a 10-second increment on the chess clock per game. This totalled up to 15 games of which Team A scored 7.5/15 and Team B scored 6.5/15. With more than 60 teams competing, our team of three Year 8, two Year 9 and 1 Year 11 students did well.
Although we did not qualify for the next round, this was a great experience which introduced us to playing in a very competitive environment!
