Metro Chess Club METROPOLITAN CHESS CLUB
(Established since 1959)



Richard (Dick) Lilly Swiss

As part of Metro's 60th anniversary, a new rated Swiss Tournament will be named after Life Member Richard Lilly. It will be called the Richard (Dick) Lilly Swiss.

Mr Richard Lilly as a player, contributed greatly to the Club for the past 50 years. The Club's 50th Anniversary Book highlighted his achievements which culminated in being recognised as Player of the Decade 1959-1969 and 1990-1999. He came third in 1980-1989 and fifth in 1970-1979.

As quoted in the book 'If one were to select the best and most consistent player throughout the whole period, you could go no further than Richard Lilly'.

Richard won the Club Championship on seven occasions and the Respini Tournament seven times. The Arved Wasser Memorial Tournament was won five times by Richard. The short game was also no problem for Richard, as he collected the Club Lightning Tournament trophy on three occasions and won the Lightning Handicap three times also.

Richard joined the Club in 1961 and has served on the committee for a number of years in different executive position. He has also been the Club's Director of Play for many years.

Richard thoroughly deserves the honour of having the new rated Swiss Tournament named after him.
