We meet every week of the year on Thursday nights at 7.15pm for social and league games at the British Legion Club.
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.
Currently we have recruited 4 new players for the 19/20 season. All chess players are welcome. We have encouraged Juniors to play at the club and 3 of our Bacchus league teams (Rooks, Knights and Bishops) are used for the development of our junior and less experienced players.
We are truly international and currently have 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.
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 have several Juniors playing competitively it the Bacchus league and lower BD & C leagues.
An Independant Junior club operates weekly at Bournemouth Library every Saturday morning, two one hour sessions from 10 to 12 noon.
All juniors are welcome, from beginners upwards.
