Chess Success for Woodbridge School  – January 2024

1 Feb 24

Our chess teams have been extremely busy, with matches played last Wednesday and Thursday in the National Schools Championships and the Ivan Gromov Online League.

National Schools Championships Regionals

Last Wednesday our chess B team, made up of Year 13’s James, Year 12’s Artem, Year 9’s Callum, Year 8’s Pranav and Year 7’s Otto and Dominic, took part in the National Schools Championships Regionals, playing against Norwich School.

Unfortunately it was the end of the road for our young team, who performed admirably against Norwich A but lost eventually 9 – 3. Well done to all of them.

Individually though, Callum won both his games, and Artem also won one of his. Congratulations to both of them.

Our A team however dominated their match, winning 12-0 against Norwich B team. Congratulations to Year 13’s Polina, Year 12’s Sergei, Christopher and Harry, Year 11’s Nikolai and Year 10’s Rowan.

Ivan Gromov Online League

Thursday night saw students take part in the continuation of the Ivan Gromov online league – Woodbridge School fielding two teams for only the second time this season.

Our A team remain top of the league winning comfortably 6-0 against Tonbridge B, and our B team drew 3-3 with Eton College B. This included debuts for Year 9’s Lade and Year 12’s Benno, who both won, along with Year 12’s Aidan. Very well done everyone who took part.
