Exeter Chess Club [MAP]
is a strong and thriving club in
established in 1895, which plays in the Exeter and District Chess League and the leagues organised by the Devon County Chess Association.
This website tells you about the club and its junior wing and keeps members and visitors up to date with developments; you might be particularly interested in our coaching materials and Dr.Dave's Chess Coaching Blog.
Getting started with the Coaching stuff
You're going to find the coaching materials on this site a bit tricky if you don't know how to play chess or how to read chess moves. After that, you can find things suitable for different levels of player, about chess openings and about the middlegame (both tactics and attacking and strategy) and about endings , about chess history and culture , about chess psychology, and about improving . There is also a lot about junior chess and the business of practical chess playing , and a bit about chess books. There is also a guide to levels, ratings and grades. Everything else is either of local interest or possibly of interest to no-one.
