Camberley public enjoying chess at Camberley Market

There was a great turnout at the Camberley Market on Saturday 21st August 2021 and many people stopped to enjoy a game of chess or chat to members of Camberley Chess Club.

There were many members of the public who on seeing the boards all setup to play rekindled their interest in chess, others who were beginners, others experienced. Also it was nice to see some old members again as well as recently joined members.

It was very interesting to meet people who have learnt to play chess online, often in the last year or less, and had never played with a set of chess pieces, on a board, sitting opposite their opponent!

It also gave the club an opportunity to let Camberley know that we have been awarded Club of the Year by the English Chess Federation.

Once upon a time, before the days of strong analysis engines, correspondence chess was a worthy activity for players to learn openings, practise middlegame and endings.

Strong correspondence players tended to be potentially strong OTB players.

Colin Lyne will take us through some his earliest postal games.

Partnership Announcement – Camberley Chess Club and Frimley Junior Chess Club

Camberley Chess Club is delighted to announce a partnership with Frimley Junior Chess Club.

As Frimley Junior Chess Club members develop as chess players and increase their desire to play more chess and challenge more experienced players Frimley Junior Chess Club are recommending Camberley Chess Club which meets on Tuesday evenings locally.

Camberley Chess Club are recommending Frimley Junior Chess Club to any juniors who may wish to play other juniors of similar experience on a Sunday morning.

Frimley Junior Chess Club was started in 2016 following an idea from Kim Shek, whose son Daniel enjoys chess hugely. They decided that Sundays mornings would be a welcome time to play chess and other skill / strategy board games in a relaxed environment.

Camberley Chess Club was established in 1972 and meets on Tuesday evenings and plays many teams in two local leagues.

This partnership means Surrey Heath has two clubs that are strongly supporting junior chess both on a Sunday morning and a Tuesday evening where they can take their chess further and play in evening league matches and attend club sessions.
