This is the LMS home page for the West Midlands Area Online League.

We are currently running an online Spring League (April 2020 - June/ July 2020) on chess.com for clubs in the Birmingham, Worcester, Leamington, Coventry and other regional Leagues.

The chess.com league home page can be found here:

The league has two divisions. Fixtures are set up in LMS which also provides the league tables. League matches are held on Thursday evenings on chess.com using team matches or individual challenges with two games at 15|10 for each board. Results are reported in LMS with league tables published for the two divisions.
