Chess Club were also very fortunate to have Tim Mortimer of East Sheen Chess Club join them and provide one hour of training in tactics before playing eighteen students simultaneously, where students put into practice the lessons that they had just been taught. Tim won every game in the end but afterwards commented on the quality of a number of our players. Rowan, in Year 7 was the last remaining player after 90 minutes of high drama.
We always have space for more players, so please come and join us outside the Oak Tree Cafe if you'd like to learn to play or test your skills. We will be running a tournament over the coming weeks and you must get signed up soon (see Mr Martin) if you'd like to join.
