2021 Programme

This is the intended Wednesday night programme for 2021, subject to change e.g. due to Covid-19. All internal club tournaments are free to play in, but all participants need to be financial members of the club. Social Chess Evenings will be held weekly on Thursdays, 6:15pm - 9pm. Please note that the club will not be open if we are at Covid-19 level 2 or higher.

For prospective members and juniors, the best night to attend the Club for the first time are the Social Chess evenings on Thursdays.
