The showpiece match of the weekend was the game between England and Germany Grand Masters (Germany won the GM World Cup in Leverkusen last year), which was won by England 3-1.

The game between England and Germany Over 65s (Great Grand Masters) was a closer run affair with England winning 1-0 after a hard fought match.
