What we do

If you wish to play or learn please contact the coordinator. We can provide introductory notes and books if would like them. We provide boards and sets.  We do not take it over seriously - I guess our current standard is lower to middle club standard.

Reports

Masy 2018

A few new members have joined so it is unlikely there will be no one to play with. However if you are coming along for the first time it would be best to contact the co-ordinator or Alwin Schmidt, 07780 561 764, beforehand to make sure there will be somebody to play with. Boards and sets are provided.

We aim at people who would like to play chess but not think of joining a Chess Club. The atmosphere is light hearted and we are allowed to talk even though in the Library. If you would like to learn how to play we can teach you. The rules are relatively simple and can be explained in about an hour. Improvement comes by playing. There are a lot computer programs for practice and teaching and many are free.

Wheelchair users can access the Library. Please contact the co-ordinator if there are any changes we might make to interest you.
