Library chess sessions have now resumed at Ingleby Barwick Library and they are on Fridays, from 4.00 - 6.00 p.m.
We now have five of our six chess libraries back up and running after the lockdown years closed them down and we are working and getting the Middlesbrough sessions back in action too.
All of the library sessions are free and open to players of all ages and abilities, from complete novices to Grandmasters. There is no expectation of commitment; just turn up whenever you want to.
In many cases, people who started at our libraries now play for our local chess clubs too.
I advise you to check with each library before attending the sessions, just to make sure they definitely on before you travel.
