GP 5 Dulwich College

The fifth GP for the season was held on Sunday 3rd March 2013 at Dulwich College with 97 participants competing across four sections.

Top two for each section were:

U9: 1st equal Navieinaah Haridas, Edward Cross, Robert Akeya-Price and Ben Barton (5 / 6),

U11: 1st Emily Green (5.5 / 6), 2nd equal Alejandro Ito-Aramendia and Thomas Hooper (5 / 6),

U14: 1st equal Jackson Wen and Alexander Selway (4.5 / 5),

U18: 1st Girinath Haridas (4.5 / 5), 2nd Rohan Bansal (3.5 / 5).

There was an excellent showing from many schools, with a special mention to large contingents from Amherst in Sevenoaks and Dulwich Prep London. It was good to also welcome so many first time players.Some superb games of chess were played at all levels and this reflected on the excellent training being provided across Kent by our wonderful team of coaches and parents. 

Many thanks to Dulwich College for accommodating us and also a big thanks to the large number of parents who helped before and on the day.

Our next Grand Prix will be held on Sunday 14th April at The Schools at Somerhill, Somerhill, Tonbridge, Kent, TN11 0NJ, another beautiful venue. This event doubles as the Secondary Schools Championship and starts at 9 am. This will be the sixth GP out of eight for the 2012/13 season. As usual you can enter on line and we hope to see many of you there once again.

Also we wish our Kent teams the best of luck over the next few weeks.
