In the Wellington Chess League competitions. V.U.C. teams have made a good start.
The B. Grade team is doing particularly well—four of last year's team help make a strong well-balanced unit. Earlier this term, the team defeated last year's E-Grade champions. Hull Valley, in a closely fought contest 3½ to 2. They have since followed up this success with a win against the Civic Chess Club by the same margin. Having avenged last year's defeats by these clubs, the B Grade team must now be reckoned a strong contender for the championship.
In its first competition match, the C Grade team held the Civic Club to a draw. This was good performance since one of the games had to be forfeited by default. The team is one of the best we have been able to field in C Grade for some time and will, we hope, have a good season in championship play.
