MiniChess Lesotho and Metropolitan Lesotho successfully joined hands to run the very first pawn soccer tournament in the history of Lesotho on Saturday 12th November.Congratulations are due to St Stephens Primary School from Mohale's Hoek who won the event to become the 2016 Metropolitan MiniChess Champions!

The tournament was held at Iketsetseng Primary School with five local primary schools participating. The participating schools were Iketsetseng Primary, Phethahatso Primary, St James Primary, Masianokeng Primary and St Stephens Primary. All 5 are currently receiving MiniChess training thanks to the generous support of Metropolitan Lesotho.

We wish to join MiniChess Lesotho in thanking Mr Thabang Mapena and the company for their continued support which made both the roll-out of the program and the tournament possible.

We look forward to seeing similar events around the country as the program continues to grow next year.
