Welcome to the page for Willow Brook Chess Club.
I’m sure many of you are missing your weekly chess club, but have no fear – an online solution has been found! I’m currently in the process of getting this up and running.
In the meantime, the people at Chess in Schools and Communities (they help organise our tournaments) have created some weekly lessons to help keep you busy. I think for some of you the first few lessons are a bit easy, but the later ones are really good. There are also fun problems to solve. Maybe the coronavirus is an excellent excuse to get really good at chess?!

I’ve also been on the lookout for a simple explanation of chess notation. It’s the special language that we use to write down chess moves. You will have seem myself and Miss Brearey writing the moves down in this way in our game against Dr. O. I couldn’t find a good explanation for you online, so I wrote my own. I have tried to make it as simple as possible. See below.
