Online Meetings

We meet online on Lichess.org and Chess.com and have had many online meetings via Zoom. We have Tournaments online too, see Events page for all the details.

We started online meetings via Zoom in March 2020 to help members keep in touch, continue to learn and enjoy chess initially whilst we were unable to meet face to face over the board during lockdown(s). Attendees have joined from all over the world including the UK, USA, Germany, Spain and India.

We invited many GMs and IMs (including the ones below) and top local players to our online Zoom meetings to show their games or openings, set puzzles, or discuss endgame techniques. We also held some inter club matches via Lichess which were viewable with commentary on Zoom live.

These online meetings were part of our efforts which resulted in us being awarded ECF Club of the Year 2021.

Most of these meetings were recorded, edited and uploaded to our YouTube channel. You can find our videos on our Videos page.

Below is a screen shot of one of our first online meetings.
