Junior vs Senior tournament on the occasion of Global Chess Festival

13-10-2019

On 12 October 2019, 15 juniors of Schaakclub Wijkertoren, 10 seniors from Huis ter Wijck and accompanying parents, played a tournament on the occasion of Global Chess Festival. The ultimate example of #ChessConnects. 

The juniors and seniors played chess against each other, but also learned from each other. The children had made drawings for the seniors and after the competition everyone wrote a little card for his opponent in memory of this Chess Connects day. 

At the end of the day, Huis ter Wijck received two Simon de Schaker books from the juniors. This makes it possible for the seniors to continue reading from the children's books to their grandchildren. 

The day was a great success for all participants and we thank them for their visit to Huis ter Wijck.
