As we have limited ability to play over the board we have set up an online club on lichess.
Please use link below (at bottom of page.) If you need help getting started please contact Dave Price (email@example.com) or Rick Renegade (Rickrenegade@gmail.com).

We have organised a Rapidplay friendly against Stroud (10-15 boards) for Tuesday 15th December, with 2 games of 25 mins + 5 secs each. We are also planning to play Meir (4 boards) over a longer time control of 45 mins + 15 secs increments.
A Lichess Ladder competition is open to all members who wish to play on a longer time frame of 45 mins + 15 secs increments.
CLUB NIGHTS (EACH TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY) – First online club night was Wednesday 25th March and since then we have been running a mix of Blitz/Rapidplay events, together with longer format games for those that prefer to take things a bit slower. With the Mals now open on a Wednesday, online chess is moving to a Tuesday (but can of course be any time that suits). Note Mals Club Night 16th September is postponed due to recent news.
