Hampshire Chess History
The Hampshire Chess Association was formed in 1890 under the instigation of Joseph Blake of Southampton Chess Club.
Currently the two main sources of information I have is the SCCU Chronology supplied by SCCU Archivist Anthony Fulton, which includes the potted history of the Hampshire Chess Association as well as the results of the matches played by Hampshire.
In addition F.Taylor the Hon. Secretary of the HCA from 1934 to 1940 completed a detailed document in 1944 and this included information on numerous activities in Hampshire up to the start of the 2nd world war. This document is scanned and has been included on this page.
