Radley College

Club night
Venue Radley College. OX14 2HR
Map (opens in a new window)
Contact Kevin Mosedale
Notes For Radley College pupils only. The chess club was revived about three years ago and we are still very much in the development stage. We can field a reasonable team of juniors (13-18) but as at 2012 only have a couple of players with a rating around 100. Other than that, there is some experience of rapid play tournaments and we enter the National Schools competition, but lack strength in depth! I'd be very interested in friendly matches against local teams. As a boarding school, evening matches or afternoon matches are possible.
