Welcome to the Richmond & Twickenham Chess Club website.

We will be meeting at the Adelaide, 57 Park Road Teddington TW11 0AU on Tuesday evenings from 7:30 to 10:30, starting, Covid restrictions permitting, on Tuesday 4 January 2022.

Our county association (Surrey) have recommended that due to regulations on COVID 19 passed in Parliament last week that all club players should wear face masks when playing at their indoor home venues, unless they are exempt. That recommendation will not apply in the main pub setting as the purpose is eating and drinking but does apply to function rooms such as the one we will start to use on January 4th. So do bring a mask with you (unless exempt). We await any further government announcements.
