Club Championship

The 2018 Penwith Club Championship was a six-round Swiss rapidplay tournament, played over three consecutive Tuesday evenings in January and February. The event was played with great fighting spirit, there being only one draw in the 32 contested games! The new club champion is Ian George, scoring 5/6 in a welcome return to tournament play, and winning on tie-break from David Saqui, who had the satisfaction of being the only player to beat Ian (with an entertaining seconds-to-spare mate from an apparently lost position, [completely lost, more like! - IG]). My particular thanks to Mark Watkins, who controlled the tournament with a perfect touch.

Full cross-table here.

About the club

We meet on alternate Tuesdays at Ludgvan Community Centre 7:15 - 10:30 p.m. We welcome new members from beginners to experienced players.

For players seeking competitive, rated games, we enter teams in most of the county league and cup competitions. We hold a club championship.. If you prefer to play casual games in a friendly atmosphere, there should be ample opportunity to do so on club nights and we hold several informal quickplay tournaments during the season.

Membership fee from 2018/19: £25 per year* (Juniors free) plus £2 per evening. If you would like to come along for a couple of sessions before deciding to join, you are welcome to do so.

(* Club membership does not include ECF membership for players taking part in formal competitive rated games. Cost of ECF membership is from £15 per year.)


Venue

Ludgvan Community Centre is easy to find. Take the turn off the A30 (signposted Ludgvan Leaze) between Crowlas and the Long Rock/Marazion roundabout and proceed along the lane past Cornwall Farmers, and the venue is about 200 yards further along on the right, just after the Ludgvan Lions football field. Our room is the directly in front of you on entering the front door. Facilities are good. There’s a free car park, and a bus stop within 50 metres (route 17B, 18 and others).


Junior Chess

We regret that, due to lack of interest this season, we have taken the decision to stop running the junior coaching sessions on alternate Tuesdays


Acknowledgements

We thank Sue Rowe at Ludgvan Community Centre for her support and encouragement to meet at the venue in Ludgvan.
