This is the official website of Poole Chess Club which is located at the British Legion Club, 66 North Road, BH14 0LY. Tel: 01202 744515.
With Covid 19 ruling the waves, we have to stop our Friday night meetings for social games at the British Legion Club, but hopefully after this 4 week lockdown, resume in December.
Poole Chess has a long history of league and competitive chess, and has a reputation as being a welcoming and friendly arena for all levels of chess players. All chess players are welcome.
We are truly international and have had five teams in the local B & D Chess leagues and two teams in the Dorset League and three teams in the Bacchus league, an overall total of 10 teams. When the league season is allowed to resume we hope to compete with those same teams.
An Independant Junior club has been operating weekly at Elstead Hotel on Saturday mornings, but this has also stopped due to the current lockdown, again hopefully we may resume in December.
All juniors are welcome, from beginners upwards.
