Welcome to the home of "Docklands Chess Club".
As an incentive to try and increase attendance at these monthly events I ask players to bring-along-a-new-friend to our rapid-plays. In return I will give a £5 discount, on the entry fee, to both 'friends'! So, if you bring-along four new friends you'll get yourself a free entry whilst they will get a £5 discount each as well.
A chess 'experience' for everyone. Whether you're an expert or just a beginner you'll find some games to suit your ability.
The 87th tournament has been supported by 33 players! Thank you one and all!
My personal thanks to each and everyone who supported us! A special thanks to all who helped with the furniture and equipment setting up and down.
yElena sends her thanks and best wishes. She says that she enjoyed meeting everyone and looks forward to offering more edible delights next time.
yElena's food will be available again at Adam Raoof's event in Hampstead on 27th April 2019! We now no longer cater on the Sunday at Hampstead.
See the results page for the list of Prize-Winners.
