Re­flect­ing on the nine-school event at Im­manuel Col­lege in Bushey, MGB’s School & Sports man­ager Alex Elf said: “Af­ter the suc­cess of the first tour­na­ment last year, we could see chess was be­com­ing in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar in the com­mu­nity.

“It’s great to see so many chil­dren stay ac­tive in mind and body to­gether.”
