Sheffield chess goes on-line! - Start date: April 1st 2020

Play other Sheffield players in a Swiss tournament. Oliver Brennan of Rotherham CC is starting a one-game-per week event next week (1st April) and entries from your Sheffield friends are piling in.

Oliver says: "I think some sort of online event is an excellent idea during this period. I'd be willing to run an online Swiss tournament at a rate of one game per week, if there's any interest from local players. I am particularly keen to get people into online play who might not have done so before. More info here:  "
