A Chess Club For All Ages

We welcome adult players of all ages and abilities, including beginners, so why not come down and have a friendly game and chat with us. If you want to play competitively, we run several teams in the various local leagues, catering for all abilities.

Mon 14th October   H&D, Royston 1, 1½ - 3½, Hertford. A good win for Hertford with Ian, Mark B and Duncan all drawing and Mark L and Alan winning.

We have four matches week commencing the 21st.

Ian Cape attended and enjoyed the first Letchworth rapidplay on Sunday 30th September. (There's a link below). Good atmosphere, easy parking, spacious playing conditions. As added attractions there was a street market for food and David's bookshop is good.

Tuesday 17th September   10 players took part in Andrew's blitz team competition. Great fun!
