Contact and Other Details for 2020/21

(in alphabetical order of club name)

Normally, details of team captains remain in place on the website until updated for the new winter League season.  However, as there obviously is no 2020-21 winter league, details of previous team captains have been removed.  On-line teams captains can be added if so desired.  Secretary/New Member Contacts have been left for the benefit of the wider public.  Venues & club nights will remain pretty meaningless until over-the-board chess returns.

 

!!! All email addresses have had the "@" symbol replaced by "(at)", and phone numbers have “O” for “0”, to reduce risk of malicious address-gathering!!!  Before using an e-mail address replace the bracket and its contents with the correct symbol.  (This has been continued from the old site.)

Ravenfield Chess Club

Updated 4th Aug 2019

 

Website

https://ravenfieldbishops.weebly.com/

Venue

The Masters House(Next to Butcher's Arms), High Street, Braithwell, Rotherham S66 7AW

Day

Monday

Disabled access

The Master House' is a listed building, making it near impossible to meet DDA requirements. There is a small step at the front of the building. We have a disabled toilet but unfortunately for access you need to be able to either manage three further steps OR leave the front of the building and re-enter at the rear. We usually play upstairs BUT are able to relocate downstairs to accommodate anyone who is unable to manage stairs. Our doors are quite narrow so it is unlikely a wheel chair user could be accommodated.
