Chess For Pleasure

Convenor: Graham Williams

Members who wish to continue playing Chess during the lockdown are registering with Chess.com and playing via the internet

Playing for pleasure! Here is an opportunity for an informal game of chess with other members in a light-hearted and sociable setting. If you are interested in chess and know the basic rules come along and join us. We don't have any sort of league, etc. so there is no need to turn up for every meeting if you don't want to. You can just come when you want to enjoy a game.

The meetings tend to last for around two hours and members would typically get to play a couple of games in a session.

When: at 10.30 am, 1st Monday of the month, in members’ homes. (This can occasionally change, by arrangement, if the Monday happens to be a bank holiday.) Send a message from this page to find where next month's meeting will be.

Next meeting will be at Graham`s house.

I show some diagrams of chess positions each month on this page. This is just for fun and won't be too complicated. Clicking on the diagram will show a question about the position. Anyone is welcome to have a look and send me their thoughts if they want to - you don't have to be a member of the chess group. No prizes I'm afraid!

To see the positions from earlier months, together with their solutions, click on Chess - Previous positions above this month's positions.
