Online Team Challenge: 7:30 pm Thurs 4th June

As publicised elsewhere on this site, Martin Clancy of Ringwood Chess Club has organised regular online chess events for individual players. Now he has set up a team event for Thursday 4th June at 7:30 pm.

As well as Ringwood, the following clubs have expressed an interest and their teams have been pre-entered by Martin into the event: Poole, Highcliffe and Wimborne. It is hoped that more teams will join but there is also a “spare” team, Ringwood Arena Nomads, for players whose club does not enter a team.

This is a Lichess Arena event, meaning as soon as you have finished a game you will be eligible for pairing in your next game against anyone except one of your own team members. Any number of players from one upwards can play for a team and at the end of the event the top 4 scoring players from each team will determine the winning team. Arena events work best with plenty of players, so it is hoped that there will be a good turn-out for each team.

If you are interested in playing please see the information on how to join in on the Ringwood club website. This may be especially helpful to players new to Lichess.
