Contact and Other Details for 2021-22

(in alphabetical order of club name)

As there were no 2020-21 over-the-board events, details of previous over-the-board team captains were removed.  Secretary/New Member Contacts were left for the benefit of the wider public.  Venues & club nights may have changed, but details are starting to be updated now that over-the-board play is planned to resume, details are being updated again, as current details are received.  Note the “Updated” dates to the right of the club name.  (Aughton is no more, and situation with Ravenfield is unclear.)

Ravenfield Chess Club

Updated 4th Aug 2019

 

Website

https://ravenfieldbishops.weebly.com/

Venue

The Masters House(Next to Butcher's Arms), High Street, Braithwell, Rotherham S66 7AW

Day

Monday

Disabled access

The Master House' is a listed building, making it near impossible to meet DDA requirements. There is a small step at the front of the building. We have a disabled toilet but unfortunately for access you need to be able to either manage three further steps OR leave the front of the building and re-enter at the rear. We usually play upstairs BUT are able to relocate downstairs to accommodate anyone who is unable to manage stairs. Our doors are quite narrow so it is unlikely a wheelchair user could be accommodated.
