There have been a number of updates to the website. The history pages have been reinstated and tidied up, and there’s still more to do. Fixtures are available to download in spreadsheet format, and also there is a page for each division, the knockout cup, and the new rapidplay league.
Please check that the fixtures for your team are correct and convenient. You can reschedule matches with the agreement of your opponents up to 28 days prior to the originally scheduled date for matches scheduled to be played in December or later.

Entries are open for the Sussex Individual Knockout Championship, organised by the Sussex County Chess Association. Visit “Sussex” under External in the main menu for details.
