Top Chess Sites

Chess Corner was reviewed in the April edition of Web Active Magazine! It was awarded 5 stars and given the Web Active Click It logo! They summed up the site by saying: "Whatever your level of skills, this is an online treat for anyone who is an enthusiast of the game"

I have had to move Chess Corner to a new host because, due to the popularity of the site, I was going over my allocated bandwidth each month and I could not afford to continue to pay for the extra bandwidth the site was using. My new host offers more bandwidth each month and I hope it will be just as reliable as my old host. You may find that some links don't work at the moment but I am trying my best to get everything back to normal as soon as possible. If you find something that doesn't work, please let me know by sending an email to Thank you.
