The Group started in December 2007, and we meet once a month at the home of one of the members.
Chess is a competitive game, which requires a reasonable level of concentration, but we balance this with the objectives of not taking it too seriously, and enjoying ourselves.
We have a wide range of experience within the group and would welcome new members, be they Grand Master level or ‘never played before’ level; coaching can happily be provided for newcomers to the game.
Meetings start at 2.30pm and usually finish around 4.30pm, and tea/coffee and biscuits are provided by our host.
At the moment we are a very small group so at each meeting we arrange a date and venue, and sometimes also the time, for the next meeting. By accommodating group members availability in this way we ensure we get a reasonable turnout.
Do contact me if you have played before, or would like to learn; I would be happy to welcome you to a meeting.
