Design done for now ... feedback required

I took some photos at the club on Monday and then - because photography is not a strength of mine - I doctored them so that they could be used in the background. So what you see is our very own chess sets, clocks and hands. In fact you may recognise some of those hands.

Let me know if its too arty, too dull, or too strange. Also let me know if there is anything missing here from the site now its changed.

Well ... we are ready for business (as it were). Hope everyone has some games to share this season [hint]. Good luck to all teams (we'll try not to miss Andrew too much).

Something looks different about this site ...

Well lots of things look different and although the appearance will change again when I get a mo (more us and less corporate!) the tabs along the top are a key change. You can access information about the two leagues and other useful information there.

Can I draw your attention in particular to the League documents under 'Cov League' including the one which is cutomised just for Rugby. It lists which team is where and when - go to COV LEAGUE for the link or directly to

Yes, you can print this out and carry it around with you :-)

Best of luck everyone. And please post news here (getting bored of the sound of my own voice!) Likewise if there are links that should be added then let me know.

New Season off to great start (Leamington League results)

The new season has already started for some. John Hall has reported great news of the first match in the Leamington League. A win against Stratford which was quite a test of the team's stamina.

Jim Macdonald won first on Board 3, followed by Nigel Malka on Board one. John was playing the son of the Board 3 player on Board 2.
After a long struggle the game was won at 10.20pm, so the overall result was 3-0.

Congratulations on a great start.
