2006 Derry "En Passant" Championships

This year, the En Passant Championships where held in the Longtower, Derry

10 junior school teams competed in a closely contested championship over the weekend.

The teams from the Derry area each fielded 10 boards so over a 100 kids packed into the Longtower for 2 days of intense competition with each school playing every other for a total of 9 rounds.

With 10 boards over 9 rounds and each board playing a pair of games, for an enormous total of 180 games the competition winner was amazingly only 3.5 points ahead of the runner-up.

Well done to everyone

Results of the competition are available in the Schools Results Service. Competitors are also rated in the Schools Rating List
