Under 16 Play with the Experts

May 9, 2021

On Sunday 9th May, 1pm to 3pm, our talented under 16 squad will be taking part in a ‘Play with the Experts’ tournament on RealBridge. It will be possible for anyone to kibitz the event with a 30 minute delay. Follow the link: https://kibitz.realbridge.online/

After the event, some of the experts will be running through the boards on Zoom with our squad so hopefully they will get lots of helpful hints and advice.

The tournament has been organised by Claire Robinson, Selection Committee Junior Liaison Officer and wouldn’t be possible without the support of the experts who are all giving up their time for free. Big thanks go to these experts; names and their junior partners are listed below for interest –

Sending our junior squads to international events (although online at the moment) is expensive and the EBU needs help from its members to support this. If you think you can help by donating towards our junior teams, please email Claire Robinson, the Junior Liaison Officer – geordieclairerob@gmail.com – for details on how to do this. Our junior squads are very grateful for any support you can offer.
