Meeting Times: Update 30/01/22: We are now settled in our new base at the Lancaster Bridge Club premises at the usual time of 7pm on Tuesdays, make sure you use the smaller door on the right when you arrive. 

The Club meets Tuesdays (7 pm onwards) from late September until the end of April.

Details: We meet weekly over the course of the year. Highlights range from the round robin club chess championship (90 minutes), to the rapid play championship, as well as occasional blitz chess tournaments. And for players who prefer to play casually, club nights always offer the opportunity to have a game.

Annual membership is £50, which includes membership of the English Chess Federation. However, if you are a student or you live a long way away, or you would only be coming occasionally, the Treasurer is open to negotiation for a lower fee.
