Resumption of Over the Board Chess

I am pleased to say we have now re-opened the club for over the board chess.

The club is open as normal from 7.30pm every Tuesday. Social Games Only. League chess will not be starting until at least January 2021.

Socail Distancing games are now played utilising two tables for everyone's safety.



Well we had out first evening back playing over the board chess after our enforced break. All seemed to go well with the new environment we now all have to work with. We came up with different ways of playing chess using Social distancing. Each player used the same set and board for the whole evening in order to avoid cross contamination! It actually worked amazingly well although it took everyone a few minutes to realise you also had to move your opponents pieces on your Board as well. Once you got used to this idea it very quickly became like a normal game you would play. So,the club will be open next week as normal and look forward to seeing even more members.
