About the league

The Thames Valley Chess League has a current membership of 13 clubs fielding 34 teams. The league is open to chess clubs throughout the Thames Valley. The league operates 4 divisions, with promotion and relegation at the end of each season and a 5th division which does not have promotion ot relegation. Matches are played in the evenings, with the option of quickplay finish or slow play games with adjournments or adjudication.

The league also runs a knock-out competition where the matches must be finished on the night and therefore all the games are decided by a quickplay finish. The TVCL is affiliated to the English Chess Federation.
