The previous year, a qualification tournament was held to decide on who got to go to the world junior championship. This tournament kicked off the tradition of a national junior championship, although I’m not sure the term was used. In 1952, it was. The tournament was organised by the club Van Pion Tot Dame from Geraardsbergen. [1] gives the final standings, which suffices to re-create the crosstable. Coosemans prolonged his title.
