Correspondence Chess is an excellent way to study chess and Hampshire players wishing to represent the County may contact the Correspondence Team Captain Phil Barber for further information.  Games are usually played online via the ICCFF Webserver though at times other opportunities may arise.  The days of postal chess are not completely gone but today you will find postal games are mainly offered by specialist clubs or via an organisation such as ICCF.
