LSEN tournament

The Open Air School in Durban recently hosted an LSEN (Learners with Special Educational Needs) chess tournament. The event was sponsored by the KZN Chess Academy and by Dr Abdul Ballim. Below is a cutting from our local newspaper, the Berea Mail:

The tournament was won by Dylan Thaver, who will lead an LSEN team from the eThekwini region to the National youth team chess championships being held in December. This is believed to be the first time that an LSEN team will play in the National team championships.
