Welcome to the Poole Chess Club

This is the official website of Poole Chess Club which is now located at the Poole Centenary Hall & Club, 22 Wimborne Road, Poole BH15 2BU. 01202674059. Free car parking is available behind the club.

Club Night

We meet every Monday night at 7.15pm at the Poole Centenary Club.
This new location is ideal for us in many ways as we had outgrown the RBL, it is larger, more comfortable, very friendly, welcoming and central to Poole, with bus and rail stations close by.
Our aim is to expand our membership, young and old alike, as well as retaining existing players
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 runs from October to May. The fixture list for all club matches are published on the LMC website (https://ecflms.org.uk/lms/league/club/1881/408/org/fixtures)
results and reports 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 every Saturday.

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

Eric Sachs
