97 children attended the fourth annual Manor Lodge Chess Congress on Sunday 23 November. The children ranged from just 5 years old up to 12 years old. They were split into three age groups: Under 8, Under 10 and Under 12.
Despite the non stop rain outside, Mr Niccoli managed to arrange 300 competitive games of chess and all the competitors had a wonderful time. It was certainly a lot more fun inside than out!
The school continues to be an excellent venue for chess and we once again reached our maximum capacity for the event. If you want to see what 97 children playing chess look like please have a look at the picture below!
