I've been playing chess for about a year now and I have only been playing online and occasionally against friends and relatives.
I've contacted the head of one of my local chess clubs but they haven't replied (and it's been a few months) so I'm not sure what to do from here. I was also wondering if anyone could give me some tips and advice for otb tournaments in case I manage to get into a club. Much appreciated if anyone could give me some help! :)
