Upcoming Events for Galway Chess Club
June 18th: Casual meeting in Monroe’s from 8pm.
The home of chess in Galway
Our next blitz tournament will be on Thursday 3 May, at the Bridge Centre (upstairs), St Mary’s Road. Start time is 7.45, and, as usual, it will consist of seven rounds with each player having 5 minutes per game for all their moves, plus an increment of 5 extra seconds per move. We expect the tournament to finish before 10.30, and all equipment will be provided. All standard of player – from experienced to beginner – are welcome; if you are interested in chess, and have maybe played on-line, but have never played in an over-the-board tournament, this would be an ideal opportunity to try it out in a friendly environment.
