A Chess Club For All Ages

We welcome adult players of all ages and abilities, including beginners, so why not come down and have a friendly game and chat with us. If you want to play competitively, we run several teams in the various local leagues, catering for all abilities.

From Tuesday 25th June   Social chess from 8.00pm. Meet in the bar. A new season of Chess Scalps, Mike's social rapidplay competion, begins.
Two changes: As well as 30 mins per player, an alternative rate of play of 25 mins + 10 seconds a move is introduced.
Also, but only if both players agree, the game can be graded. Playing conditions in the bar area aren't always the quietest so please take this into account.
The club will be meeting informally on Tuesdays throughout summer either downstairs or, if it is fine, in the garden.
