Tournament Cancelled

We were very sad to hear that due to a lack of response from school chess players, the Bridge House School Rated Tournament will not proceed this year.

The Organizers are already planning how to engage more players next time in order to make this a regular on the chess calendar.

Keep your eyes and ears open, as we will let you have details as soon as we receive them.
