Woodseats Chess Club, which is actually in Heeley and easily accessible on the 53 bus route out of the town centre (see contact details), is one of the oldest chess clubs in Sheffield and welcomes players of all strengths. Whether you're a beginner who has discovered chess on the Internet or in the press or a serious player who wants to play in the very competitive Sheffield Chess league, we're sure that we will be able to find you a level of play to suit.
At the moment we have three teams. One of them is currently in a strong position in the Sheffield League Division 1 under the leadership of John Fletcher with International Master Andrew Ledger as top board. The other two are also doing well (see the tables in the left hand menu for more details).
This short film was made by a student from Sheffield Hallam who visited the club sometime ago. It features a whole range of people talking about what fascinates them about chess. It also shows the club in match action in the Sheffield league. You can cut the tension with a knife! Don't believe anyone who tells you that chess is a boring game!
This is the Richardson Cup of which the club are the current holders. We are still in the running to retain it this year. The menu items on the left hand side of this page will allow you to find out more about what playing chess in Sheffield can be like at all sorts of different levels. If you've not played before, why not come along one Monday at 7.30 p.m. to the Red Lion Pub on Chesterfield Road and find out what it might be like!
