Brewood Chess Circle have arranged a social chess event to take place tonight (Monday 26th January) at the Bridge Inn pub in Brewood starting from 6:30pm onwards and this will continue running whilst there is sufficient demand. This is a chance for anyone who is interested to join in with a game and have a friendly introduction to the chess club.
The full postal address of the Bridge Inn pub is:
The Bridge Inn Pub
22 High Street
The Bridge Inn pub is the nearest pub to the church hall where the chess club is based and is therefore of course a pub already familiar with members from the chess club. It is a good place to celebrate victory or console yourself after defeat.
For those already familiar with the pub throughout the community of Brewood we have been given space in the bar area of the pub. For those unfamiliar with the pub as you go in through the main entrance turn left into a little bar area and we will be spread out throughout the area throughout the evening. There will also be a quiz night running throughout the evening at the pub.
We hope to attract interest to our chess club from those who already play socially or on the internet, those who used to play at school and have not played for a while and those who are completely new to the game. There is no minimum ability test required to join. We accept anyone of any ability (both male and female, adults and children.) Enjoyment of the game alone is enough.
The chess event will have a digital chess clock that is used by the club in its own competitive matches so those who are interested in learning the differences between social chess and competitive chess can see a little bit of what is required. There will also be the opportunity to have informal coaching sessions and a chat with the existing members of the club.
All equipment will be supplied by the chess club itself so anyone interested in joining in on the evening does not need to worry about bringing any of their own chess sets.
Brewood Chess Circle committee member David Blower commented: "We all enjoy playing chess in the different league competitions we enter but above all our chess club is a friendly and social chess club regardless of if a game has been won, drew or lost, where you can have a laugh and where refreshments such as tea and coffee are always available.
"Running a social chess club event in the nearest pub to our home venue is a little bit different to what we have done before but we are keen to increase our community involvement within Brewood and the surrounding areas and this social chess club event is one of the ways in which we are planning to do that. We believe that we have something for all levels of chess ability at our club.
"There is always a good turnout at the club even when there isn't a match and any new members to the club are sure to be welcomed to the club. I would also like to say that we are grateful to the Bridge Inn pub who have provided us with space to run the event at no cost to us. We would love to see the Brewood public come out to support the event."
