20/07/20 Rugeley Chess Club, Covid-19

Updated Coronavirus and chess in Rugeley.

Lea Hall has now announced it is opening the doors back to the club. Which means we can finally play socially face to face on the 20/07/2021 (international chess day) #InternationalChessDay #chess and get back to over the board mayhem. Prior to that there will be a process of sanitising all the equipment, ready for use. We're pretty excited about meeting up again, and we will have to look at competitive chess when and as able. We're still in the Computer room upstairs and there are no restrictions in place regarding numbers etc. We may have lost some regular members but hope to gain some new interest, and welcome new members.

There is still Rugeley Chess Club online on Lichess for those members who dont quite feel ready to come down to Lea Hall. Play online chess

Rugeley Library Chess Club is still suspended until further notice.
