As you settle in to your Summer and the last league games become a distant memory, fear not! We have organised some competitive games and events over the next few weeks to help keep your wood-pushing withdrawal symptoms at bay.
Not only will it be an opportunity to flex your chess skills, they also promise to be very sociable and enjoyable events. A reminder of what we have planned so far:
Monday 18th July: Hammersmith vs Battersea
The first of two games in what’s been dubbed the West London El-Chessico, sees Hammersmith take on Battersea over 12 boards in an ECF rated game at the Albion. Battersea are a great club with a rich history and some very good players. Should be a competitive & enjoyable evening!
Monday 25th July: Sue Maroroa Simultaneous
Women’s International Master and former Hammersmith player Sue Maroroa takes on Hammersmith Chess Club in a 20-board Simultaneous at the Albion. Sue ranks in the top 10 female chess players in the UK so this is a fantastic opportunity to get some game time against a top class opponent. Members and Non-Members are welcome so get in touch if you would like to play.
Tuesday 26th July: Battersea vs Hammersmith
The return leg of El-Chessico sees us head down to darkest SW London to play Battersea on their Home Turf at the Battersea Labour Club (very close to Clapham Junction). Who will win bragging rights??
If you’d like to participate in any of the three events please get in touch via your team captain or email us! Alternatively you can swing by on a club night and speak to one of the team – full details here.
