Thursday, September 8, 2016 Well the Hanham Chess Club B-team managed to do 2 things that the A-team didn't do this week. Firstly they managed to get on the score board and most of all we won our first match of the season. YEAH!

We traveled to the Malcolm X Community Centre to play Harambee. We enjoyed the background music of Kizomba & Samba classes. Phil, Kevin & Mike all managed to win their games to allow the B-team win 3-1.

Wednesday, September 7, 2016 Not the most auspicious start to the season for the Hanham Chess Club A-team losing 6-0 to Cabot A.Cabot outgraded us on all boards so it was always going to be an uphill battle. Despite this Glen looked like he was going to get a positive result against their super strong Board 1, until a blunder late into the game under time pressure. 

The A-team will look forward to the return of Barry & Doreen to bolster the ranks for the season ahead.May we wish the B-team a better result in tomorrows game.If anyone wishes to play for us or a few friendly games please email us at

Wednesday, May 11, 2016 At our AGM last night we awarded our A & B player of the season awards last night. The A Team award was awarded to David & Kevin, while the B Team award was to Barry.
