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.
