Gold Coast Individual Age Championship 2023

Author: Josh Cooper (Junior Club Coach/Arbiter)


On the 25th of October Emmanuel College hosted the Gold Coast Age

Championships, run by Gardiner Chess. This tournament attracted over 800

kids and many schools competing. The Tournament consisted of different age

groups based on the year they were born from 2006 all the way to 2017.

29 Gold Coast Chess Club members were involved in the Gold Coast Age

Championships and every player did a great job. All players showed great

sportsmanship and worked hard over the 7 rounds of chess.

Congratulations to Ryan Wang, Ezekiel George, and Nathanael George who

competed in their first big tournament.

Big congratulations to all players who received a medal and Merrit ribbon and

great job to everyone who participated in the event. It was a very tough

tournament, so everyone deserves recognition as everyone played well.
