UKCC Southern Gigafinals Champs Bring it Home to Essex
Well done to our Essex juniors, who won the UKCC Southern Gigafinals, and those who placed in the tournament.
Congratulations to Ruqayyah Rida, who won the U10 Girls section, Luoke Wang, who became the U10 Boys Champion, and Mae Catabay, who earned the U12 Girls Champion title at the UK Chess Challenge Southern Gigafinal.
After qualifying and winning the UKCC Megafinals, the three continued the momentum with an impressive victory in all their games at the Southern Gigafinals in Harrow. They will advance to the Terafinals in October 2022 to play in the beautiful Blenheim Palace.
