 ​A Joint Coventry and Leamington Online Chess League in the new year, 2021!


Coventry, Leamington, and surrounding area / 01 December 2020

Building on a successful Autumn 2020 season of online chess (despite the pandemic!), the Coventry and District Chess League will be forming a joint 2021 Spring League with the Leamington and District Chess League.

Local chess across the Coventry and Leamington area, remains vibrant as ever. The new joint league plans to bring together all the existing clubs in both Leagues. This comes in the backdrop of Warwickshire and surrounding areas entering Tier 3 restrictions, the Coventry's City of Culture 2021 celebrations, and of course, the renewed interest in chess from the Netflix's Queen Gambit TV show - watched by over 70 million people since its release!

The current online League runs across two divisions, an Open Division, and an U140 Division, with eighteen teams stretching over the borders of Warwickshire. The joint League is due to begin in the new year, on the week beginning 18th January 2021, and will have two to three divisions. The League is open to all existing Coventry and Leamington League clubs, and any new clubs based in historic Warwickshire. The deadline for entries, is nominally 23.59 Wednesday 6th January.
