G- Play Chess

Chess is good for the brain: playing it exercises both sides of the brain giving it a good workout; it sparks creativity, improves problem solving skills and helps optimise your memory. Apart from this it is good fun! Why not join us and play chess, just for pleasure. Players of all ability are most welcome, including those wishing to learn the game.

It is hoped that all members will improve their standard of play through internal tournaments, discussing their games and learning new openings.

Venue: The Fell Room on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month (Starting in
September) from 1:30 pm to 3:45 pm, all year round except for August and
Christmas.

Note:
1. On the first meeting we ask for a one-off donation of £1 in order to cover
costs (trophy engraving and incurred expenses) for the coming year.
2. Should the group be unable to meet, due to ‘pandemic restrictions’, there is the
opportunity for players to continue to play via e-mail.
