Chessboxing Season Opener

A battle of brawn and brains

In these crazy modern times, it's not good to be one-sided in your skill-set. Yeah sure you might be smart but what happens when sometimes tries getting rough with ya? Huh? Huh!? Or conversely, you might be tough, but what happens when someone throws some spontaneous algebra your way? What ya gonna do? Nothing, that's what. You're gonna look right silly. But not if you're a chessboxer. Chessboxing is a wild mix-up of two of mankind’s oldest sporting obsessions. Opponents slug it out on the chessboard and in the ring in alternating rounds of chess and boxing until there is a winner by checkmate or KO: whichever comes first. Over 16s only. Valid ID required. Happy hour until 8pm.
