Our school participated in the 2019-20 Inter School Surat District Chess Competition held at and hosted by Delhi Public School, Tapi (Surat). In this competition, twenty-one schools participated. Each team had four players.
From our school – Jainikbhai Gajera, Ashraybhai Patel, Pritbhai Patel and Shlokbhai Saraf were selected by our Sports team. Each player played five matches against other schools. Our school comfortably won by 3:1 against Radiant International School and S. D. Jain School. But by the end of the competition, we ranked eighth in the total of twenty-one teams. Individually, Shlokbhai and Ashraybhai were able to win three matches out of five.
We heartily thank the Surat District Chess Association and Delhi Public School, Tapi for hosting the event. We also thank our coaches Hemant Sir and Ritesh Sir for helping us improve our game and giving this opportunity.
