Launch of The Natasha Regan Trophy for the women’s division

The London Chess League introduced the “Natasha Regan Trophy” for its newly formed Women’s division, thanks to the generous sponsorship from WIM Natasha Regan.

For the launch of the trophy, she attended an exciting match between the two leading teams of this season: Battersea Women’s and London University Women’s.

It was a thrilling event, with a meet-and-greet with Natasha preceding the match. Alongside the 4-board competition, there were extra rated games for newcomers to try out classical chess.

We are very thankful to Natasha for her generous support and recognition of the London Chess League’s efforts to encourage more women to play, which helped make the first season of the women’s league a success.
