Chester Chess Club meet at 7:30pm every Tuesday night in the Function Room on the 1st floor of the Town Crier Public House, opposite Chester Railway Station.

Prospective members are always welcome to attend and if you want to play a friendly game there is usually no shortage of like-minded opponents.  Our membership is large and diverse, amongst them beginners and others who wish to play for fun.  We also have a number of strong players – in fact, some of the strongest in the county.  Our club teams compete successfully in all competitions of both the Chester & District and Wirral leagues. Parking at the venue is charged but after 6pm there are around a dozen free spaces close by on Station Rd next to a roundabout . This would be on your right if you exited the station on foot through the main entrance. Metered street parking is £1 for the evening from 6pm.

We also have an online blitz team playing on Thursday and Sunday evenings at 7pm in a global league with all members welcome to join in: https://lichess.org/team/chester-chess-club

We plan for our Junior Chess Club to meet from May 2022 on two Thursday evenings a month from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at Hoole Community Centre, Westminster Road, Hoole, Chester. We also plan for one online meeting to be held per month on a Thursday 5.30pm to 7pm. Exact schedule TBC – please email Phil for the latest details.

So whether you have never played chess before or you an experienced player who has moved into the area, we would like to hear from you. Our President Phil Crocker can be contacted via e-mail at: info@chesterchess.co.uk
