Youth Chess Tournament of Stichting Buurtschaak

06-07-2019

This Saturday was a wonderful day for 80 children between 6 and 12 years from the region.

In 2017 Chess on Tour came to Haarlem, which gave a boost to the popularity of chess for children. Today they got the chance to participate in the youth chess tournament of the local Chess Foundation (Stichting Buurtschaak) in the Congress Centre of Tata Steel. A great tournament for children with- and children without much experience in chess.

The prizes were handed over by Jeroen van de Berg, Tournament Director of the Tata Steel Chess Tournament. Chess Connects!
