    Thank you John for listing us in your blog. As a new club barely one month old, we are humbled by the mention. Hope that this will help encourage more people in Nanyang to play chess as well :)

  2. Hi John

    I've attended/been attending most of the meetups above =) Just 2 minor clarification:

    1. For the Nanyang Community Club, they actually meet on alternative Fridays/Saturdays every week. Meaning to say, they met on 22nd July (Friday, 7pm onwards), and will meet on 30 July 2016 (coming Saturday, 3-5pm). If anyone is uncertain over which is the "alternate" week, it'll be ideal to call the Community Club to confirm whether the session is on (6791-0395).

    2. For the meetup at SportsHub Library. it is not available every week. The organiser(s) would update everyone via an existing What's App group (I can't share the number here as it may pose privacy concerns.)

    If there's more chess playing venues becoming available, let me know! If I come across any, I'd let you know too. Thanks again!

  5. Hi John and Yujing, I am interested to get my little boy to join the Sports Hub Chess Session. Could you advise how I can get in touch and be updated on their schedule? I can be contacted at samklchia@gmail.com. Thanks!

    1. Hi Sam

      The Sports Hub Chess Session is currently discontinued. So you may have to choose from 1 of the groups listed above.

      Other than the listed places above, I only know that Cairnhill CC is also an avenue to play chess, but I don't happen to be aware of its hours (that is one group I still have no knowledge of at the moment).
