Welcome to the Poole Chess Club

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.

Club Night

A New season begins
We meet every Thursday night at 7.15pm at the North Road Social Club, 66 North Road, Poole. BH14 0LY. Tel: 01202 744515
With well over 30 players signed up and raring to go with OTB chess, this league season should be one to enjoy after the Covid interruption. Yes it’s still with us, so we must all be careful and cautious, so that we don’t fall foul of another lockdown. The club has sanitizer sprays and wipes. If you are more comfortable wearing masks and gloves to move the pieces please bring your own.

We’d like to extend a warm welcome to all our new members, young and old alike.
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 have 7 teams altogether competing in the B&DCL and the Dorset league which all kicks off on 11th October. The fixture list for all club matches have been published on our website and results of our club’s matches will be posted after each event.
Good luck to all Captains and the teams taking part.

We pride ourselves on offering chess at all levels and this season we have several members that just wish to play social chess over a drink and a chat. It maybe as a result of the hugely popular film ‘Queens Gambit’ being released during lockdown but it seems there is a renewed interest in people returning to chess.

If you have any questions please contact me and I look forward to seeing you at the club.
This is just a welcome start for those that are ready and comfortable to meet now.

Junior Chess at Elstead Hotel, Bournemouth

We hold junior chess lessons at our new venue, the Elstead Hotel every Saturday morning from 10 am

They have adequate and free car parking facilities and the hotel is happy to house our junior chess sessions on a on-going basis.

We plan to take every possible precaution in view of the current covid-19 virus to protect all parties involved and will be issuing a separate safety document to all parents.
We will require you to pre book/register in advance, including payment, which is to be made online. The payment fee is £5, please see the form below for registration and payment details.

You will need to book by session – first or second – and would ask you to commit to the session you choose, as it’s difficult to change during these unusual times.

I am delighted to advise that all our coaches are happy to continue teaching your juniors and look forward to meeting and seeing you again on every Saturday.

If you have any questions you would like to ask, please contact either myself or Graham.

Regards

Eric Sachs

October 14, 2021 by Eric Sachs

And they’re off!!!! Poole A got their campaign underway with an away trip to pre-season favourites Wimborne A on Wednesday night. Out-graded on all boards and without ‘El Capitano’, it was always going to be a tough grind and the crowds were not to be disappointed. Still, we had Dugs (w) on 1 and yours […]

Highcliffe C, 2-2 Poole D in the 1st match of the season

October 14, 2021 by Eric Sachs

Our D team gained a creditable draw at Highcliffe as the season started with a bang. Joe captaining for the 1st time did a grand job organising and bringing the team together and the team responded a hard earned point. As a fan from the terraces I felt a little like ‘Billy no mates’ watching […]
