Champions v The Rest
Thursday, 30 September 2021, at Barking CC
Reviving the annual Challenge match, the 2019-20 League Champions, Barking, take on a team drawn from the rest of the League over 12 boards.
Apart from it's traditional place as a precursor to the new League season, this match has special significance at this time as we feel our way back to over-the-board competetive chess.
London's Ultra Low Emissions Zone
From 25 October 2021 London's ULEZ will be extended up to, but not including, the South Circular and North Circular Roads. This will therefore cover Essex' home venue, Wanstead House, 21 The Green, Wanstead E11 2NT.
From this time, vehicles which DO NOT meet the minimum standards will be charged per day to drive within the zone, so those travelling by road to Wanstead House will want to check whether their vehicles comply.
2021-22 Counties Championships
Covid-19 permitting, the Union stages will take place - October 2021 to March 2022, with the ECF National knockout stages April to July 2022.
