CHESS SETS AND BOARDS

For home and school use, the standard plastic set with a 95mm (3¾") king which has felted bases is recommended. This is the set seen at most junior and adult events. This comes in a durable plastic rectangular box with a firmly fitting lid, or with a drawstring bag. Price  £8.95 .

A single-weighted version of the standard plastic set is popular and  priced at £11.95. A great feel at a reasonable price, supplied in either a plastic box or drawstring bag.

To go with these, 2 types of board are stocked:

The cheapest is the roll up vinyl 'mat'. Great on a table at home or school if to be stored flat. 4.75cm squares £2.95

The Folding board at £6.95 has the advantage of being portable - great for taking to a tournament, on holiday etc. and stores well. 2 inch squares.

Various travel sets, both with stand up pieces and flat 'disc' pieces, magnetic and not, are stocked. Spare pieces of most of these are available if you cannot find that pawn under the seat in the car!

If you are looking for a quality wooden set, these can be ordered in a variety of woods. Recommended are those of Staunton pattern if they are for juniors to play on but other sets are available if desired.

Do please enquire.
