TIVERTON CHESS CLUB

counter customisable

Season 2014/15

 

Season 2015/16

 

A Club for enthusiasts of any standard who enjoy playing serious or friendly chess in a thoroughly sociable atmosphere.

 

The club reopens on 16th September 2015 and will meet every Wednesday, 6.30 p.m. till 10.30 p.m. at The Haven Centre, Broad Lane Tiverton, up to and including the last Wednesday in May 2016 (excluding 30th December 2015).

There are excellent playing conditions with the use of a convenient refreshments corner, a lounge area in which to relax between games, and an analysis room.  An added attraction is a large free car park.

On 23rd September the club champion, Brian Hewson, will give the traditional simultaneous display and on 30th September he will lead a coaching/general discussion session on pawn structures and endgames. Club competitions will get underway on 7th October.

Subscriptions: £10 for adults, £5 for juniors.

Evening attendance fees: adults £3; juniors £1

Members who wish to take part in club competitions must also be at least Bronze members of the English Chess Federation.

For those who request it, tuition or help is available.

Results for the club’s internal competitions for the 2014/15 season were as follows:

Championship: First - Brian Hewson (7½/9); Second – Ivor Annetts (7/9);   3. Keith Atkins (4/4) & Gregor Fotheringham (4/6)

Rapidplay: First – Brian Hewson (24/26); Second – Ivor Annetts (19/23);  Brian Aldwin (14/24)

The 2014/15 season was reasonably successful for the club.  It won both the DCCA Rooke Cup, beating Exeter by 6 – 2 in the final, and the Moyle Cup.  It also came within a whisker of winning the Newman Rapidplay competition, failing to take the title by one point in the final match against Exmouth.

In the Exeter and District League the club, with a weakened team, again performed poorly in the Premiership.  It also did not do well in the Championship division.  But in the newly devised Handicap Rapidplay it finished just one point behind the winners, Exeter Prestissimo.

External competitions entries for the 2015/16 season will be decided when more is known about the club’s membership strength.

New members are always warmly welcomed and should in the first instance the secretary on 07976 942 352; email ivor.anette@sky.com
