Autumn Term 2020 – Worthing Knights Online Tournaments

Thursday September 3rd – Thursday October 22nd Inclusive, 17:15 – 18:45

Join for as long as you wish, you do not have to play the whole 1.5 hours

Sadly, chess over-the-board cannot resume at the Durrington Community Centre yet so the Knights will continue online until half-term at least.

If you are new to the club, please set-up a lichess account on https://lichess.org/ using the SIGN IN button and let me know your user name.

Each week there will be 2 tournaments set-up on lichess – experienced players should play in the Premiership and less experienced players (and players who can only play for part of the time) should choose the Championship.

I will email out the lichess URL for the tournaments on Tuesdays.

If you are not sure which tournament to enter, just get in touch.
