We have recently reopened and are now welcoming new members.

We meet every Monday evening from 7:30 at The Abbey on Chesterfield Road (in the upstairs function room). We’re a friendly club and cater to all levels of play. You’re most welcome to drop by and enjoy a friendly game of chess with us. Please get in touch if you have any questions, or just to let us know you’re coming.

We are also active and thriving online. Quite a few of us play on internet chess website, Lichess. We also run an online weekly club tournament. More information here:

If you choose to play in the Sheffield and District Chess League, we have 3 teams to cover all levels of play. There is a charge of £1 per game, which goes towards the running of the club; and if you play more than 3 games, you will need to join the English Chess Federation who run the league.

At the time of writing, a Bronze membership for one year is £18.
