Chess (Sociable)

Group Description

This is a small group which started in March 2019, and we welcome new members who can already play Chess or are complete beginners.

We aim to enjoy friendly Chess games, and our more advanced players are keen to help others improve their game.

We meet at the homes of those who have the necessary space for the required chess-sets and tables. With the current group size, room for 4 games is usually sufficient. Not every member attends. because of other commitments or preferred activities, particularly in Summer.

Meetings are on Mondays at present, usually the 1st and 3rd of every month, from 2.00 – 4.00 pm unless Bank Holidays cause us to vary this.

Because of the Pandemic we have been using Zoom for meetings and may do so again. Members of the group have also taken up playing others using Chess.com (so you don’t even need to own a chess set) and would be happy to use this approach for helping new members develop their skills on whatever days are agreed.

For more information, please contact the convenor.
