Chris Ward's Friends & Family Tournament

The fantastic, fun-filled Friends & Family function was held on Sunday 26th January 2014 at Rosemead School. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all, as the KJCA welcomed not just the regular KJCA junior players, but also many parents, grandparents, younger siblings, relatives and friends alike.

There was a great atmosphere with some great and interesting performances by many, but most notable were as follows:

- Best Junior Players:

  • Senior school age - Rohan Shiatis (5 / 5)
  • Junior school age - Anika Roy (4.5 / 5)

- Alisa Gray was the best adult player on 4 / 5.

- The Amazikidz Team, featuring Rohan Shiatis, Vishal Shiatis, Kiran Shiatis, Raakavi Rajaseelan, Ben Williams, Max Waters and Krishna Shiatis, won the coveted KJCA best team trophy.

Many thanks must go to GM Chris Ward for his fabulous hosting skills, all the kind voluntary helpers on the day, including Jayatee Roy, Anil Anilkumar, Luca Bernardini and Andrew Shiatis. In addition, a very big thank you to Rosemead Prep School and their very kind deputy head for opening their doors to the KJCA. A special thank you must go to Sue Maguire for making the event happen and providing such excellent catering.

There were many winners on the day and we have featured many of these in the gallery below. Apologies if your picture has not been included since we had a few technical difficulties with our photographer on the day J. A full gallery is available on facebook.
