Bath Street Chess

Here is a new initiative by the University of Bath Chess Club.

On Sundays throughout the summer – June 28th, July 12th & 26th, and August 9th & 23rd – they will be holding public chess sessions in the square outside the Abbey (near the tourist office).

All equipment, including clocks, is provided for a friendly social game on a warm summer Sunday.

See here for more info: http://people.bath.ac.uk/en2cpgl/chess_soc/bath_chess_poster.pdf

I’m hoping to go to a few, and should be there on July 26th. Looks like it could be quite good fun – come along if you can make one.

I have added notes on the history of the club to the ‘About the Club’ page. Here is a short chronological summary of events in the club’s history:

1900 The Chess Club is formed, becoming the first extra-curricular club in the school, along with the CCF, Philatelic Society and Field and Camera Club, all formed in the same year.

1945 The Club, which had dissolved, was reformed after World War Two, and remained strong over the next fifty years.

1990 The Senior Chess team hosted a match against a Russian team from Leningrad, and the Under-16 team won the Somerset Schools’ Championships.

As you can see, the chess club has a long an illustrious history. Next year will be our 110th anniversary and I am determined that we should begin to play matches and competitions as our predecessors did.

Owing to a number of factors, no more games were recorded after 10/03/09. However, a grand total of 52 points were gained, giving an average score between the 21 competitors of 2.5 points. There were some flaws in this terms system: some players played far more games than others, and some played only ‘weaker’ players. For these reasons, in future terms we will use a different system, which I will outline after the results.

So, in this term’s league, the winner, with 11 points, was: Adam Cope

In second place, with 7 points: Nas Andriopoulos

And in joint third place: Ed Aspinal and Henry Entwhistle

Well done to everyone who took part. Next term myself and the other Y11s are on study leave, so the club will meet informally, just come along if you want a game. However, from the Autumn Term of next year, we will be implementing a round-robin style tournament, in which all players will play each other player once with each colour over the term. Hopefully this will give us a more accurate representation of where people are in the club. We will also definitely be arranging some fixtures.
