Read All About it!

If you wish to read about Chess there are plenty of online sources available but the situation for Correspondence Chess is far less rosy. If often get asked about sources for news and information

An obvious place to start is the player’s National Federation. These are very much a mixed bag and it’s a case of trial and error to find good sources. IF you have a basic translator in your browser (fairly standard is Chrome) then I would recommend the sites of :










These sites are a great source of news. If you want more discussion about the game other good sources are:

Welsh Correspondence Chess Facebook Group. This is a private group as some of the discussion is typical Welsh banter. If you would like to join the contact either Russell Sherwood, Austin Lockwood or Ian Jones


Immortal Chess Forum

This is s very large forum with discussions on many chess subjects

Talk Chess

Here these is a different focus but many interest subjects

Ultimate Chess Forum

Lots of great resources here. An interesting model – if you wish to access most of the materials you have to contribute (post) to the forum.


The Russian CC Federation resides here but lots of really interesting content.


There are plenty of other sides but these are some of the ones I find most interesting.
