Mutual Circle Chess Club
(Kings Heath, Birmingham, UK)
Sadly, in March 2020, over-the-board play at the club had to be suspended indefinitely because of the Coronavirus restrictions. This was a blow - not least because our Div 2 team had already earned promotion to Division 1 for the first time in 30 years!
Nevertheless the club has continued to play online in the West Midlands Area League (WMA), in within-club Blitz and Rapidplay events, and in tournaments on both Chess.com and Lichess.org . On chess.com our club can be found and joined at: https://www.chess.com/club/mutual-circle-chess-club whilst on Lichess we are at: https://lichess.org/team/mutual-circle * We remain open to prospective new members! *
Many of our players are also members of the two clubs on the Chess.com and Lichess platforms that have been specially set up to promote online chess amongst all players in the Birmingham & District Chess League. These are "BDCL" on chess.com and "Birmingham Chess League" on Lichess. Old and new members of Mutual are eligible to join either or both of these two meta- ( or 'umbrella') clubs which both hold tournaments on a variety of days of the week and at various time-controls.
In more normal circumstances we are a medium-sized, friendly club that meets on Tuesday evenings in the south Birmingham area. In 2019/20 we had teams in Divisions 2, 3, and 5 of the Birmingham & District Chess League (BDCL). We also fielded two teams in the Dudley League. We would have taken part in the BDCL's Rapid-play Summer League too if this had not been cancelled for 2020.
We are always to keen to see or hear from prospective new members.
