Well Done Bethany Austin on reaching the National Finals of the UK Chess Challenge. There were over 48,000 entrants throughout the country and only 4% managed to get through to the gigafinal.

Bethany is 12 years old and attends Huish Episcopi Academy. Bethany started playing chess at her primary school, Hambridge Community Primary, at the age of 6, under the guidance and support of Mr Lawrence and Mr Crabtree. More recently she has joined Wells Chess Club and also plays county games.

She attended the Megafinal at Millfield in May where she gained the Suprema title having won her section. From this she qualified to attend the Southern Finals (Gigafinal) which she completed at the weekend and manged to get a silver medal (2nd place) in her group. This result means that she will now be able to attend the national finals of the competition on 12th-13th August 2017.
