  • The club is reliant on the availability of rent-free premises. The club must maintain a good relationship with existing venue provider and ensure that it is a win-win situation for venue provider and J.P. Chess.

  • The club is reliant on a few key persons for organization and administration. More volunteers and involvement from others are needed to spread responsibilities and reduce this risk.

  • COVID restrictions, if implemented, can impact on indoor gatherings
