The third GP of the season was held on 20th November 2016 at Bullers Wood school in Chislehurst.

Thanks to everyone who came along – all our young chess players, and also to all their parents and carers for taking the time to come along to the tournament and support junior chess. It was a busy day with approximately 120 players over four sections.  

The top three in each section were:
