Thanks to Crowthorne Chess Club for arranging the team for our friendly match which took place on Thursday 22nd June 2023.
In the end we had 7 players on each team which was excellent. Everyone was okay with the relatively short (but still standard play) time limit, and with making the games rated despite it being a ‘friendly’. It was a little hot but our new premises at least allowed us to ‘segregate’ six of the match boards in a separate room away from some of our noisier social players!
In the end the score was 4.5-2.5 in favour of Camberley, but there were a few games that could have gone either way until the last 15 minutes.
