Terafinal and challengers 2014

Five Welsh juniors competed in the Terafinal and Challengers events held on 16 and 17 August. Neja Govindaraj netted the highest score by a Welsh player, accumulating 9 points out of a possible 18 (the scoring system awards 3 points for a win and 1 for a draw).

 

The other four players Hiya Ray, Ethan Chung, Nye Bradfield and Sridatta Dantu – all under 7s, picked up several points. They have gained very valuable experience, and they must be applauded for their courage in participating in such a tough competition that contains players aged up to 18, including several with ECF grades of over 200.
