ACT Interschool kicks off

 The ACT Interschool Chess Competitions kick off tomorrow, with the 2023 ACT Secondary Girls Final being held at Merici College. Continuing the trend of increased numbers for chess events, this years tournament already has 55 entries, well up from last years 30 players. The team of players from Lyneham High School are probably the favourites, and a win for them would make up for missing out last year (by not having a team!). However both Canberra Grammar and Radford College might be looking for a different result, while defending champions Merici College will also be in the mix.

In term two, the Primary and Secondary Open zone events will be held, with the Open finals in term 3. These events are organised by the ACT Junior Chess League, and usually attract big fields. if you are a junior player in Canberra, and your school is not sending a team, then get on to your teachers to organise one!
