Since the beginnings, Worldwide Girls U14w existed as a subcategory, played on Thursdays, together with other Worldwide events. The biggest difficulty to overcome was time zones, and this tournament was played in three different timings to cover as much as fourteen time zones. That was not favorable at all, because teams from East and West never really got a chance to play together to decide who is the best. Finally, this Saturday we got a “united” champion, or so we hoped… Two teams came on top with the same number of points!! South Africa U14 Girls and England Juniors Under 14 Girls leading players were successful, but better rating performance declared girls from South Africa as winners – their first triumph in Worldwide. Congratulations! Third place went to Sharp Kids Under 14 (Philippines).
In Group B, a very strong performance by three teams: DCC Girls (Dubai, UAE), She Plays To Win (United Kingdom, 42 players!), and KSz “HETMAN” Katowice (Poland), all of them to be promoted in higher group. In Group C, the best were girls from ThinkB4UMove (Riga, Latvia). Total number of girls playins today was 152.
