Welcome to 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

I am so pleased we have resumed OTB chess on Friday nights from 7.30, in the bar at the British Legion, North Road and hope if you are feel like coming along there will be a reunion with other members.

We need to observe the usual protocols of face masks when entering, using sanitisers and bar service will be provided to avoid going to the bar and mixing outside your own group. Groups are limited to 6 people.

We are expecting at least a dozen or so members to come along and hopefully, more will join.

For those members that prefer to wait until the total easing of lockdown currently scheduled for the 21/6 , we look forward to seeing you when you are ready to return.

This is just a welcome start for those that a ready and comfortable to meet now.

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.

Junior Chess at Elstead Hotel, Bournemouth

We are delighted to advise that, we have re started junior chess lessons at our new venue, the Elstead hotel from 22nd May 2021.

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 provide disposable gloves, sanitizers and cleaning in the rooms and you are asked to wear masks in the hotel public areas.

As we are currently restricted to a maximum of 6 juniors in each class, it is a case of ‘first come, first served’ and to that end 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 from the 22nd May 2021.

* Subject to number of applications and any future government restrictions.

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

Eric Sachs
