I welcome news from the clubs in Suffolk. Please send anything of interest to me.
The fixtures for the Leagues and Cups have been published for all to see on Dave Wild's website - here.
There is a total of 22 teams playing in the three divisions this season, an increase of one from 2015/16.
Over the next few days there will be a catch-up of events that have taken place over the summer. We will also look forward to the first meeting of the re-formed Ipswich Junior Chess Club, taking place on Saturday 10 September.
