School's Results

Apologies to our members competing in the Zonal School's Finals on 17th January for not getting this on-line sooner but despite being late, we're pleased to report an excellent day for our members:
  • Charlotte Webb took second in the under-15 girls Elite;
  • Daniel Frost (despite being 2 grades lower than most) narrowly missed qualification to nationals in 4th place in under-19 boys Elite and is now sweating on somebody above him dropping out;
  • Maddison Merritt won the under-11 girls Novice;
  • Susanna Badley won the under-13 girls Novice closely followed by Fiona Humphries and Lucy Phillips making it a 1-2-3 for the region and club;
  • Susanna & Lucy were also joined by Emma Brereton and Ellie Guy in winning through as a team for Coopers Coborn.

Brentwood Grading 24th January 2010

From Brentwood Grading 2010
Some disappointments I know but by and large a really successful day. First of all thanks to all of you who turned out to help set-up and took on tasks during the day but particularly very big thanks to the small number who were there Sunday evening putting it all away again.

A full report is on our website here but, in the, meantime headline news is:
  • 34 club members taking part in 12 different classes;
  • 7 individual and 7 team winners;
  • 4 taking second places;
  • 2 taking 3rd places;
  • 8 improving on personal best scores;
On the downside, only 5 managed to achieve qualifying scores (although a few were only a few decimal points off) - judging really is very tight right now it seems.

Brentwood Grading - Postponed

Following discussions with ECGA about Sunday's competition, the decision has been made to postpone it until 24th January.

This decision has been taken because travel in the outer reaches of the region are still predicted to be difficult on Sunday and for many it would be unsafe to travel.

More Snow Update

Although most of the local schools are closed today it seems that Brentwood School is functioning normally and, having just called the centre, they expect to be open this evening until 9pm again so it looks like Thursday sessions will be running pretty much as normal. Please check back later for any update to this though.

Snow Update


The centre has just confirmed that they will be open this evening until 9pm and so we will be running sessions as normally as possible.


There has been quite a lot of snow in Brentwood overnight and today and several schools (including in the last hour) Brentwood School are either closed or have sent pupils home early. As at time of writing, though, the Brentwood School Sports Centre has not yet made any decision about whether or not they will be open as usual this evening. Please check back later for updates.
