We are truly international and currently have six teams in the local league and two in the Dorset League.

We meet every Wednesday at 2.30pm at Flirt Café (underneath Bournemouth Library in the Triangle in Bournemouth) to play fun and casual chess. This is a lively environment and has been established for over eight years as a central cafe for chess players of all standards.
We encourage junior chess at the club and currently had added 4/5 Juniors from ages 11-16 to our Club. Next season we will play a team in the newly formed Bacchus league and will try and field as many Juniors in this team. We are directly responsible for teaching juniors at Bournemouth Library every Saturday morning from 10 to 12 noon.
