There is lots of chess to be played in the upcoming weeks – online tournaments on lichess.org and the first September weekend will be the postponed last round of the SGM season 2019/20. Especially here we need your support to set up a strong team!

Information about the current situation

Dear Chess Friends,

I don’t have to write a lot about the current situation around the Corona-virus.

Chess at Letzi and in Switzland has been more or less closed down. The last round of the SGM and the first of the SMM season have been postponed by the SSB; the start of the Zurich Stadtmeisterschaft is as well cancelled.

Currently, it is not allowed to visit the Pflegezentrum Bachwiesen to play chess; however, we are in discussion to find another venue or maybe even to start internal online tournaments.

We are in close touch with the federations and will inform you as soon as there are news!

Please check out the following links for further information (mainly in German):

Besuchsverbot in den Pflegezentren

All the best and stay healthy!
