Back to Over The Board chess every Friday Evening from 10th September.
Crowborough Community Centre TN6 1FE downstairs meeting rooms.
Parking is limited immediately outside the Community Centre but plenty of very close free parking on the other side of Pine Grove signposted to Waitrose.

Fridays
6:30pm Junior Club starts with a short training session followed by the 10+5 Junior Blitz Club Championship

7:30pm Adult Club starts with the 25+10 Rapid Club Championship

 We have hired both Meeting Rooms 2 & 3 so plenty of space for parents to sit either in MR3 or the Café Area until 7:30pm

At 7:45pm we will close the dividing screen so that Meeting Room 2 can be used for the Rapid Play while Meeting Room 3 can be used for analysis and casual games.

The older juniors are encouraged to join the adults and play in the Rapid play.
Club will close at 9:30pm.
