About the club

Calstock Chess Club meets on Thursday evenings from 7.15 pm in the Boot Inn. the club offers chess training for players aspiring to improve their game as well as opportunities for casual and competitive chess. All are welcome, including beginners, juniors and returners to chess, as well as graded players new to the area.

Venue

Matches and club nights are held at the Boot, where for matches we have a quiet dedicated room. Parking is available nearby on the quay.

Some home matches, particularly in the County Shield, are played elsewhere, either at the Eliot House Hotel in Liskeard or at a mid-point venue by negotiation with the opponenents. Please check here for the latest information.

Team News
Fixtures

The source of the fixtures listed in the left hand column is the final list published by the League Secretary on 30th June. It should be regarded as provisional until the season gets under way as the dates and/or venues of some fixtures may be changed if so agreed by the clubs concerned.


Teams in the Cornwall County Chess Association Leagues

In addition to the knockout competitions (the Roger Grime and A. W. Busby cups), the club has entered teams in three leagues. In the top league, the County Shield, we run two teams in association with our partner club in Liskeard, the Calstock and Liskeard Killers and the Calstock and Liskeard Clowns, effectively run as ‘A’ and ‘B’ teams. We will also be entering teams in the Roberts Cup and the ‘quickplay’ 500 League, both called the Calstock Bootleggers.


Strategic alliance

The Calstock and Lerryn Chess Clubs are continuing their strategic alliance with overlapping membership. This arrangement was endorsed by the Cornwall County Chess Association to assist village clubs in meeting their league obligations, although with three new members Lerryn Chess Club is now hopefully off the endangered list.


Club News

Several new members have joined the club and the level of enthusiasm is high both for league participation and friendly games on club night. The club organised two successful simultaneous displays last year, one with IM Andrew Greet and one with Theo Slade. We work in association with Chess in Schools and Communities in teaching chess at Calstock Community Primary School, from September in curriculum time. Regular training sessions are held on club nights on chess opening theory, tactics etc. The club’s Facebook page (webmaster Richard Hendin om1770) gives regular coverage of match reports and activities, and includes a photograph album. Our founder David Jenkins has been elected President of the Cornwall County Chess Association as compensation for his declining ECF grade.
