Ringwood Junior Group

Please note that this group is temporarily suspended because of the coronavirus.   Andy and Martin intend to restart the group at the appropriate time.   Please revisit this site periodically for updates.


Starting 15th February Andy Baskett and Martin Clancy are running a junior chess group in Ringwood Library between 11:00 am and noon, for 8 weeks.

The group will be based upon the Chess in Schools and Community syllabus and essentially each session is “learn something new” and then “play to practice it”.



The first Saturday saw a successful opening with 13 keen young players attending.   The group welcomes juniors from age 7 upwards and all abilities.

Congratulations to Andy and Martin whose drive has brought this about.
