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.
