To celebrate Hastings Week there will be a chess tournament at the White Rock Hotel on Monday 8th 2018, 7:00PM
Aimed at casual players (those without an official chess grade or low grade).
Now in its 9th year, a popular tournament with trophies and cash prizes for juniors (below the age 14) and for seniors.
Each participant will play five games against different opponent with time controls roughly 12 mins each.
Entry fee payable on the night TBD but usually a very modest amount of a few pounds.
Contact 01424 728300 to pre-book or for more information.
Wednesday 12th September 2018 sees the start of junior club for the new season.
For full details and how to join please see our dedicated page.
*** New this year ***
In addition to our regular fun competitions, variants, prizes and entry into the Delancy chess challenge (the biggest chess tournament in the world), we will be entering a team in the Kent league (Intro Cup) where we will be inviting our more accomplished juniors to play for the club and town. Joining the English Chess Federation, in turn, and embarking on their journey to titles and greatness!
We are running two classes this term and next so we have plenty of space for new members.
Due to unforeseen circumstances (England reaching the semi-finals of the World Cup), Junior chess club will be cancelled this week 11th July 2018. The club will return and resume as normal the following week 18th July. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Good luck to England on Wednesday and we hope that the tactics and strategies they employ in their game as we do in ours work perfectly for them.
Come on England!
