Chess champ Angelina Fiszer-Tsenembis (pictured) will be spending this summer weekend sitting still and thinking very, very hard as she battles on the board against fellow young contestants in the finals of a national tournament.
She learned to play earlier this year at the after-school weekly chess club run by North Walsham Infants’ head teacher Clare Fletcher.
Angelina, seven, will be among finalists representing Norfolk at the event in Manchester. “I just can’t believe it,” she told her classmates when she announced the news in school.
The UK Chess Challenge began in 1996 and now attracts in excess of 74,000 competitors and involves more than 2,000 schools.
