Chess at The Word

Posted by Lewis on November 12, 2018

South Shields Chess Club working in partnership with South Tyneside Libraries are now pleased to offer the opportunity to play chess on a Saturday Afternoon between 2pm and 4pm at the new Central Library in South Shields. This is a great opportunity for the general public and in particular young children to play much more casual chess in an open and friendly environment. Making chess more publicly accessible can only be a positive thing.

The Word, also known as the National Centre for the Written Word is much more than a typical library and is well worth a visit. If you find yourself in the area please drop by and see us.
