As lockdown eases, what’s happening with chess?
Ian Bush writes:
In response to the Government’s roadmap for moving out of the lockdown, the English Chess Federation (ECF) has recently published a document that details how the changes will affect how we can play chess over the next few months.
Here are some of the key dates:
- No earlier than 12th April – play chess at home, plus limited junior chess indoors.
- No earlier than 17th May – limited club / local activity resumes
- No earlier than 21st June – start of more general opening-up
Of course, each club’s situation will vary as to how and when they can meet the requirements, but at least after a long wait there is a bit of light at the end of the tunnel!
