For the second year running QMGS hosted a national under 14s tournament which included teams from Surrey and Oxford.
After a long day of chess Magdalen College School won the
tournament and King Edwards Edgbaston where runners up. Well done to
Dhiren Bahia, our board one player for winning a board trophy after a
tough day battling with graded players. (Including a player with a
grading of 169).
Last Friday a team of year 7 and year 8 students entered the Lightning Tournament hosted by King Edwards Edgbaston. Everyone managed to win at least one game, so well done to all involved. Particularly well done to Amrit Singh and Joshwan Jagpal who managed to win board prizes. Amrit Singh won 7 out of 8 games and Joshwan Jagpal won 5 out of 8 games.
