We kept our masks on and set the Clocks for 90 mins each. It was a little noisey to begin with as the soft(!) music of the outside Aerobics class wafted into the hall.

But it was exhilarating to have an opponent to face across the board with a long time on the clock for a slow game. All faces were focused - an occasional laugh and chat and the games were away.

After games completed there were friendlys played and more chat.

Players are welcome to attend - play starts shortly after 6:45pm as the centre closes at about 10:00pm.

Location: NICS,Maynard Sinclair Pavilion, Stormont, Upper Newtownards Road, Belfast, BT4 3TA

If you wish to attend we currently have a max of 10 places - so please register your intention to attend by Teusday 3:00pm. Email Mark Newman : mark.chris.newman@googlemail.com

There is no charge for entry.

This is a drop in tournament - so come for one week or as many as you wish.
