Welcome to the Summer Chess League – London’s lighter league.
We are a new league for 2017 and hosted by Battersea Chess Club at their venue near Clapham Junction railway station.
Our launch night was on June 13, and for it we welcomed GM Simon Williams and IM Simon Ansell.
The league is a collaboration between Battersea and Hammersmith Chess Club, with support from Streatham & Brixton and the British Bangla Chess Association.
Here are the details:
– Time controls: 60+30s
– No adjournments
– All games ECF graded
– Matches on Tuesdays
– All games at Battersea
The idea is to create a relaxed, friendly atmosphere where players can get in some games over the summer
We have six teams taking part from across London, two from Battersea, two from Hammersmith, one from east London representing the British Bangla Chess Association and one representing Streatham & Brixton Chess Club.
- Battersea Volts
- Battersea Amps
- Just Hammered
- Totally Hammered
- East London Knights
If you are interested in playing for any of these sides or entering a team, get in touch.
