Our chess club is divided into sections, with each section having the same number of players. The two oldest members will soon be retiring from playing and we will change the number of sections. The number of sections will change by one and so will the number of players in each section, but all the sections will still have the same number of players. This will result in there being a grand total of 63 fewer matches per year if each member plays all the other members of their section once per year.

How many players are in each section at the moment?
