Puzzle of the day
With regard to chess, the core activity of our club, we will host an internal competition, which will take place on Wednesday evenings between 19.15 and 21.30 in вЂ˜The Yard', at the Radboud Sports Centre. You will be matched with players of your own level, but can play against a different player every week. Apart from that, it's possible to challenge someone else to a game when you want, competitive or not.

Furthermore, the courses will be held on Tuesday evenings. Firstly, a beginners course will be organized, so that chess within our club is accessible to everyone. This course will be followed by an advanced course. Later on, those courses will also be available to all sports card holders who want to get acquainted with our beautiful sport.

Finally, SSVN Tussen de Torens had the ambition to host a tournament for all members three times a year!

Besides playing chess, SSVN Tussen de Torens also wants to connect and entertain its members. That is why we aim to organize activities, drinks, outings, and even a real gala. The activities committee will take the lead in this.
