A Doctor Who themed chess tournament is taking place in Mablethorpe today (Thursday November 28), to celebrate the one year anniversary of the Chess Kings club.

The tournament, which is open to everyone, will take place at Mablethorpe Library from 4pm until 5.45pm.

There will be prizes for the best Doctor Who fancy dress, and for the winner and runners-up of the tournament.

Jamie Carter, who runs Chess Kings, started running the club on November 21 last year. The club now gathers three times a week, at Mablethorpe Library, Sutton on Sea Library, and Alford Library.

He also runs successful chess clubs at Sutton on Sea Community Primary School, and Monks’ Dyke Tennyson College in Mablethorpe.

Jamie said: “We have got quite a few regulars now at the chess club sessions, but we always welcome new members and new volunteers to help run the club.

“It’s nice to have an inter-generational club, as chess is a great game for all ages.”
