Various West Coast Chess Players proved their mettle at the South African Junior Closed Chess Championships that took place from Wednesday 16 March to Sunday 23 March in Johannesburg.

The players who took part are as follows: Dominique Titus (u-12 Open section), Andrea Lewaks (u-8 girls section), Legene Malleta (u-14 girls section), Anastacia Ligwa and Jamie-Lee Mitchells both competed in the u-16 girls category.

According to André Lewaks (Deputy President of West Coast Chess) this was the highest number of West Coast players that were ever invited to participate at the SA Junior Closed Championship.

“Only the players that are regarded as the best in their particular age group are personally invited to compete for a place in the SA Chess team,” explains Lewaks.

“Although none of the West Coast Players qualified for a spot in the SA team, all of them can proudly say that they are one of the top chess players in their age group in the country,” Lewaks added.

He adds that the West Coast Chess Union would like to thank Club Mykonos, Itatile Foundation and Ceramic Foundation as well as Allen’s Real Estate and Chess SA for sponsoring some of their players.
