The online presence of Sutton Coldfield Chess Club. Our Club was established in 1937 and, among very many titles, we were the National Club Champions in 1960-61, 2015, and 2016. In 2020 we were as usual in contention for several other titles when... along came the virus. So here we are online. Come and join us so we can start winning online too! *** TO JOIN THIS GROUP YOUR FULL NAME WILL NEED TO BE GIVEN AS PART OF THE JOIN REQUEST *** http://www.suttonchess.org.uk/
