Our CSC Teesside library sessions continue to fire on all cylinders.
Sean Cassidy, who runs the sessions at Stockton Central Library, has recently concluded an all-play-all Stockton Library Chess Challenge.
31 players competed and the champions are Wayne Foster (Adult) and Aryan Nalawade (Junior)
Wayne had to have a special play-off match with Kevin McGrother to decide the title, as they had both finished the main tournament tied at the top.
Unfortunately, Kevin passed away just a couple of weeks ago and he will be greatly missed by all at Stockton Library and also at The Buffs Chess Club.
Well done, everyone! It is wonderful to see such a vibrant community activity in action.
We currently have five chess libraries and we are working on setting up more during 2019.
The sessions are open to all players, from complete novices to world champions.
It is advisable to check with the libraries directly to ensure the sessions are definitely on if you are hoping to attend for the first time.
