Junior news from the Terafinals! Get the news in David's report and gallery.

7 Aug 2017:

Full-time Downend & Fishponds journalist John Stubbs has written a report of the club's showing at the 2017 British Championships and of course there's an accompanying gallery. It's also worth noting that club member wannabe Daniel Young also qualified for next year's Championships with his excellent performance in the Major Open.

First there was the Northern Gigafinals, and now there's the Southern Gigafinals. In the U15s Thomas scored a very strong 2½/6 (which included a game against the 206 top seed!), however it was Oli that took the prizes with an incredible undefeated 5/6 (half a point behind the top seed) including some excellent results against very strong players. Oli's second place means that he joins Toby with a ticket to the Terafinals. Don't forget to check out the gallery of the tournament.

David has written a report about Aron, Jack, and Toby's successes at the 2017 Northern Gigafinal. Also his photos have been saved in another new gallery.

12 Jul 2017:

It was the first junior match for the club. John has written up a match report complete with pictures of the night.

19 Jun 2017:

There will be a junior match where Downend & Fishponds' youngest will be pitting their skills against Chepstow juniors on July 11th with some of the club's strongest players in attendance to provide post-match analysis. It should be a great event if you're able to attend and we're hoping it might blossom into a yearly match much like the Pentyrch tradition meaning yet more work for me on the site. Full credit to John Stubbs for organising the evening.

20 May 2017:

There were over 170 juniors at the Bristol Megafinal at Bristol Grammar School. There were 3 Downend juniors in the U15 section, all doing themselves proud:
