Torbay Chess League Suspended due to Coronavirus

Monday 16 thMarch 2020

As the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) makes headline news around the world, the Torbay Chess League has decided to suspend all activities - and postpone all matches - with immediate effect.

After discussions involving the Chariman, Secretary, Competition Secretary and all the clubs in the Torbay Chess League, there was unanimous agreement that - with great disappointment - the TCL should suspend all matches (League and Knockout) until further notice. To be clear, all remaining fixtures in this season’s calendar are officially postponed. We will be review the situation in three weeks’ time.

We will decide in due course how to wrap up this season’s TCL competitions and whether or not to go ahead with the TCL AGM currently scheduled for 11th June.

Please contact the Torbay Chess League Secretary (Phil McConnell) if you would like clarification or discussion on these decisions.
