It is time to do Battle (geddit??!!!) again
Hammers the gauntlet has been thrown down – honour must be satisfied – the esteemed and noble Chess Club of Hastings (aged 140) has challenged the brash (but very nice) new kids on the block Hammersmith (aged 60). This will be a mighty clash over 14 boards with all to play for.
The Hammers will be captained by Adam and places are already going fast – it is time to get with it. If you want to take part contact Adam as soon as possible as he needs to finalise the team early next week.
The long play challenge will be followed by a blitz tourney and a few pints.
Hastings is one of the most historic chess clubs in the world, home to the ECF for many years and just a train journey away.
Play will start midday and Adam will advise you of the travel arrangements. Hammer this is a club that has entertained the greats –Lasker, Capablanca Botvinnik, Karpov and Korchnoi are just some that spring to mind.
Now they have the new force in UK club chess turning up – Hammersmith.
This is your chance to create some chess history – contact Adam Cranston now!!!
