More than 20 William Patten children have been taking part in the UK Yes2chess competition over the last 6 Weeks. 4 teams were selected from the Tuesday and Friday chess clubs and competed on line against schools throughout the UK. Over 100 games took place. As the defending UK champions we are very proud to announce that our C team, (Serhat 5B, Zachary 4L, Seren 5J, Caitlin 5J and Molly 3CL) in their first experience of the competition, made it all the way to the quarter finals. Our A team (Sam 6C, Marina 6C, William 6C, Alexander 5B, Henry 5J and our sub Ben 6C) won their semi-final to become one of the two teams who will represent the UK at the International finals. Such an amazing, exciting and sometimes totally nail biting achievement for all the children involved. Fingers crossed for William Patten v Spain on 6th July.
