This new event was held over the weekend of 16 & 17 September 2017. The Young Chelsea Ladies Swiss Teams was the brainchild of club committee member Paula Leslie, who worked tirelessly to make the event a success. She induced a total of 16 teams, many from abroad, to enter the event, found some sponsorship for the junior teams’ entry fees, and recruited popular tournament director Jonathan Lillycrop to run the event.

 

At the end, after ten rounds, the winning team on 134 VPs, picking up a £1,200 prize was The Weak Link (Gilly Clench, Lizzie Godfrey, Sally Brock, Karen McCallum).
