In recent years the level of support for the Suffolk Ladies’ Championship has been poor. There were four entrants in 2010-11 but last season the event did not take place. The current champion (from 2011) is Vicky Allen, who is also the organiser of the Championship.
This season there has been an excellent response and there will be seven entrants, five of whom are juniors. This augurs well for the future of Women’s Chess in Suffolk.
The Championship will be an All-plays-All, with each entrant playing six matches over the next six months. Those entering (in grading order) are:
The last four named above are all regular attendees of the Bury Knights Junior Chess Club.
Good luck to all entrants!
