What are you doing on Sunday?

Just a little reminder.

If you spent too much of your hard earned cash over the Christmas period & New Year's celebrations, why not try winning some of it back this Sunday - 7th January 2007 - at The 69th Richmond Rapidplay? There are four sections - an Open, an under 160 Major, under 120 Intermediate, and an under 80 Minor. This tournament has an excellent 4½ point rule: "if you score 4½ or more out of 6 you are GUARANTEED A PRIZE." Plus, it's organised by Streatham & Brixton Chess Club members Angus & Sue (amongst others) too.

Good luck! (& for those who plan a bit further ahead than me, you might want to take a look here at a promising tournament coming up mid-February . . .)

Quick question mate. Are you the most central London chess club?

No - not even close!

We're based in south London.

There are quite a few central London clubs though: Drunken Knights, King's Head, Capablanca, Metropolitan, Cavendish, Athenaeum spring to mind . . .

However, the London League mostly meets centrally - so to an extent, for the most important games, it doesn't really matter about geography - they're nearly all played centrally.
