The communications survey is being sent out to you today so please look out for it. The survey will close next week and we’d love to hear your thoughts on all things Claires Court.

It is wonderful to see so many boys joining the two chess clubs we have here at Claires Court. I am encouraging members to use lichess to improve their play using the Practice section. It’s great to be able to play a few games in school, but if you can then back this up by improving your play - all the better!
The Delancey Chess Tournament will be starting next week, and I shall be putting the draw together soon.

Joseph Conlon will be running another Cheney Rapidplay event in Oxford during the February half-term on Monday 21 February 2022. In contrast to previous events, this event will also be open to adults. However, young juniors new to tournament chess would be put into a separate junior-only section. As for previous events, the format will be 8 player all-plays-alls, sorted by playing strength. The entry link is: https://forms.gle/z9L3KfWMHaTLyQtcA
