Diary: Looking Ahead to 2017-18 Season

Regular club meetings take place on most Thursdays at 7.30pm. Please note - we are now closed for our summer break until September 2017. When we reconvene it will be our second year at our new venue - Woolton Hill Church Hall - see venue page for details.

In 2016-17 we played from 8th September 2016 to the end of May 2017. We expect to follow a similar pattern in 2017-18.

When there are away fixtures on Thursdays, we usually do not have a social club evening. So if you do not attend regularly or are coming for the first time, it is best to check with us before you come.

When we have home games it may be difficult to properly welcome first-timers (the players are heads down and concentrating). In any case we suggest you give either Keith Savoy or David Skyrme a call - see contacts page - so that we can expect you and give you a warm welcome.

Fixtures and Results

The dates of fixtures for 2017-18 will be determined in early September. In the meantime the accompanying PDF file lists the results for the 2016-17 season. A similar pattern of dates is expected for 2017-18

The most up to date list of our fixtures - and those of other teams in the Berkshire League - can be viewed at the Berkshire Chess Federation website - click on 'member clubs', then Newbury, and then on fixtures (the first named team is the home team). This website also gives details of all league fixtures, board-by-board results, player's ratings and stats etc.).

Some of our players also play for Berkshire in Chiltern League Matches. The Berkshire A-team is for all grades while B-team players must have a grade <150. Details of fixtures, results etc are at the Chiltern League website
