Unfortunately all Noble Park Chess Club events, including junior coaching and the Knights Cup, are cancelled until at least April 18th due to the coronavirus outbreak - which has resulted in the closure of our venue, the Paddy O'Donoghue Centre. We will update our members if this situation changes and we hope the club will be able to return to normal operation in the following months.

Wishing all club members well in this difficult time,

Chris and Dom
