Join the Girls Team
The HSCA is actively looking to develop and encourage girls to play chess for the county. So, if you have recently started to play chess and looking to improve by playing in a team against experienced opponents, we would love to meet you.
The U11 Girls Team manager, Mr Lewis Misselbrook, would be interested to discuss opportunities for you to participate in our training sessions and play for the county.

EPSCA U11 Girls Final – 22nd March 2014
The 2013/14 Girls Team with manager, Tony Corfe, and coach, Marc Shaw.
Eleven girls and their parents travelled to Didcot, Oxfordshire to participate in the EPSCA National Inter-Association Final. Of the sixteen teams which had originally entered five had withdrawn before the day. Hertfordshire struggled to find a full team, but on the day Hertfordshire were represented.
The girls, aged 6 to 11, worked very hard. They took their games very seriously and none were finished in a very short time. We scored 4 points out of 36 possible games and were placed 11th out of 11 teams. Nonetheless, we had a wonderful day. Everyone learned something new about the game of chess and is eager to meet in the future to practise with a view to scoring more points next year.
My special commendation to Aminat Lalwal from St Theresa’s School, Bushey, for being an excellent Captain and role model for the rest of the team.
A special thank you to the parents for their support throughout the past two months of preparation for this final.
