Online Chess Opportunities for Worthing Knights Players

Worthing Knights Online tournaments

I am continuing to run our weekly online tournaments on Thursdays; 5:15 – 6:45pm.

These are free and you can join in for as long as you wish; you do not have to play the whole 1.5 hours.

You will need a lichess account –  https://lichess.org/ – for safeguarding reasons you MUST contact Dave with both your real name and your Lichess name.

For those of you keen to improve and to widen the players you can compete against, I will be assisting David Fryer of Crowborough Chess Club with some of his online offering, which is now open to Worthing Knights to join if you wish:
