Telepost Chess Club
Welcome To Telepost Chess Club.
We meet on Monday evenings at The Telepost Club, Abbey Foregate, Shrewsbury SY2 6BT where we are fortunate to have the use of a pleasant clubhouse with a licensed bar. New members are always welcome of whatever standard, from beginner to experienced player.
We currently have twenty or so members
and we run three or four teams in the Shropshire Chess League, with
opportunities to play friendly social chess, to compete in various club
and county competitions, or just to watch and enjoy some interesting games.
Some useful contacts are:-
No need to join right away; you would be welcome to attend as our guest. The club welcomes newcomers. By all means come along and try us for size on a no obligation basis as a guest of the club. It can take several weeks to discover whether the club suits your needs and it takes time to become familiar with the other members and the way we do things. Only after you are satisfied that you would like to join our happy band would you be asked to subscribe as a member.
Attendance on club nights can fluctuate quite wildly depending on what is happening, so do not be put off if there are very few people there on the first night you attend.
Some serious games are conducted largely in silence and other friendly, casual games may well involve some banter. If people are quiet when you first attend, do not assume we are an unfriendly bunch! On club nights and before or after matches people will be happy to chat and maybe prop up the bar.
