FINAL Version - New England Open 2022 (17-18 September 2022)

from Campsie, NSW

This event listing request from Benjamin Hermann started me thinking – 2020 was a dreadful year, but the upside was the boom in Chess. Be it Covid-19 or Beth Harmon or who knows…please just enjoy this small story from Campsie NSW!

We are hosting casual chess matches for adults in Campsie Library (14-28 Amy Street, Campsie NSW 2194) on the 2nd Friday of the month between from 5.30pm to 8.30pm until and inclusive of June.

If we find we are having a consistent positive response, we’d love to extend or make this a permanent time slot.

The aim is to give adults a safe, comfortable, regular meeting place and time to play face to face chess and meet other players, regardless of their skill level or their financial situation.

Players are welcomed to bring their own boards or pieces if they like, however they must conform standard rules and may not be profane or offensive (for obvious reasons).
As a bonus, it’s a nice way to end the week.
