The Championship has been cancelled

The Canterbury Championship has been cancelled after two rounds due to the current medical issues. The next tournament – the Lightning Championship – is planned on the 27th of April, but who knows… Hope to see you then.
There will be social chess in the meantime, so you can come and play some friendly games if you are well.

Update:
I suppose the whole Lakemba club is closed now, so there is no social chess.
