Women’s Team report – Radebeul 2018

England Women’s 50+ Team, left to right Helen Frostick, Ingrid Lauterbach, Petra Nunn, Sheila Jackson

For the first time, England sent a women’s team to the World Senior Team Championship which this year took place in Radebeul, Germany. In a very efficiently organised competition, the English 50+ team, consisting of Sheila Jackson 4½/9, Ingrid Lauterbach 4½/9, Helen Frostick 2½/9 and Petra Nunn 6½/9, won the bronze medal in the women’s section with 9/18 match points behind the strong Russian and German teams. Individual board prizes were won by Sheila Jackson (Bronze) and Petra Nunn (Silver). The team spirit was excellent and everybody felt that sending a women’s team was a really positive development. Overall it was a great event and we all agreed that we should play again in 2019, hopefully with a reserve player …
