The Chess team from the Universitat de València already held the title of ‘autonomic Champion’ and this week has been proclaimed winner of the Autonomic Championship of the University Sports (CADU) celebrated in the University of Alicante. UV Table Tennis team also got the gold medal.

The Chess team, led by Ramón García, got the new autonomic leadership, apart from a gold medal for Marta García and a silver one for Mireia Represa. As their managed highlighted on the social network Instagram: “Although the regulation makes a distinction between men’s and women’s medals, since it is a mixed competition, it is fair to emphasise that Marta is the overall winner of the tournament, solitarily with a brilliant performance (five victories and some stalemates in the last round)”. 

The Table Tennis team of the Universitat de València also won the autonomic championship title. Apart from reaching the highest podium position, the team led by its manager Chema Grau won a bronze medal in individual masculine for Javi Rodilla and two in feminine, the gold for María Pilar García and the silver for Carla Hernández. 

Next goal of both teams is the University Spain Championship (CEU). The national championship of table tennis is on April 20 in Burgos and of chess on 27 April in Salamanca.
