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

    Updated Coronavirus and chess in Rugeley.

    Lea Hall has now announced it is now open for drinks only in the lounge area and other rooms are currently not in use, including snooker area. In terms of over the board chess it means that we are unlikely to reconvene as a club until September which will have significant implications on closing our current season and starting a new one. We also need to probably start with an AGM. Prior to that there will be a process of sanitising all the equipment, ready for use.

    The committee recommendation remains that all future chess games are played online, until the situation is resolved. There is a Rugeley Chess Club online on Lichess Play online chess

    Rugeley Library Chess Club is suspended until further notice.
