Welcome to Poole Chess Club

This is the official website of Poole Chess Club which is located at the British Legion Club, 66 North Road, BH14 0LY. Tel: 01202 744515.

Club Night

I am pleased to report we can return to our usual RBL (Royal British Legion) room this Thursday 29 July at our normal time of 7.15pm onwards.

The room has been cleaned and the club have confirmed they are open every night of the week, so all systems go for hopefully a full return to something like normal chess nights at our little theatre of dreams and all things Poole Chess Club.

This will replace the interim Friday nights that have been used over the last couple of months and I would like to thank everyone that has made an effort to come down on what is quite a difficult night for some members just to meet up and play some chess.

Once we get going over the next couple of weeks we will arrange an AGM to discuss all the club fees and everything going forward.

I hope we can get a reasonable return to OTB chess but also respect any members that are still cautious returning, as the Covid infection rates are still high. The club has sanitiser sprays and wipes. If you are more comfortable wearing masks and gloves to move the pieces please bring your own.

Some members may be away on holiday and August is usually a quiet time of the year at the club, but we have a lot of catching up to do and it will be a pleasure to see as many members at the club on a regular Thursday night.

If you have any questions please contact me and I look forward to seeing you at the club.

This is just a welcome start for those that are ready and comfortable to meet now.

Poole Chess has a long history of league and competitive chess, and has a reputation as being a welcoming and friendly arena for all levels of chess players. All chess players are welcome.

We are truly international and have had five teams in the local B & D Chess leagues and two teams in the Dorset League and three teams in the Bacchus league, an overall total of 10 teams. When the league season is allowed to resume we hope to compete with those same teams.

Junior Chess at Elstead Hotel, Bournemouth

We are delighted to advise that, we have re started junior chess lessons at our new venue, the Elstead hotel from 22nd May 2021.

They have adequate and free car parking facilities and the hotel is happy to house our junior chess sessions on a on-going basis.

We plan to take every possible precaution in view of the current covid-19 virus to protect all parties involved and will be issuing a separate safety document to all parents.

We will provide disposable gloves, sanitizers and cleaning in the rooms and you are asked to wear masks in the hotel public areas.

As we are currently restricted to a maximum of 6 juniors in each class, it is a case of ‘first come, first served’ and to that end we will require you to pre book/register in advance, including payment, which is to be made online. The payment fee is £5, please see the form below for registration and payment details.

You will need to book by session – first or second – and would ask you to commit to the session you choose, as it’s difficult to change during these unusual times.

I am delighted to advise that all our coaches are happy to continue teaching your juniors and look forward to meeting and seeing you again on every Saturday from the 22nd May 2021.

* Subject to number of applications and any future government restrictions.

If you have any questions you would like to ask, please contact either myself or Graham.

Regards

Eric Sachs
