rated as the best event of the whole season.
The competition regrouped more than 900 players in all age
groups, from U11 to M+45, a lot of prizes for the participants
thanks to our numerous sponsors.
If the Women's event was logically won by homegirl Nour el
Tayeb against Mayar Hany, the Men's final was riveting
between Karim El Hammamy, former World Junior Champion,
and Youssef Soliman, runner up World Junior Champion last
year! After a seesaw battle, it was the underdog Youssef that
took the 2016 Heliopolis title in 5 games.
All the other finals were very
interesting and challenging, especially in the juniors', as most
of the players are travelling to the British Junior.

title Hania El Hammamy, BU13 Ismail Sherif, of course
