Welcome to the website of probably the best chess club in Nottingham.

We meet on Tuesday evenings throughout the year, welcoming both members and non-members.

We are ideally located at Nottingham’s 2015 LocAle Pub Of The Year, the Lincolnshire Poacher, 161 Mansfield Rd NG1 3FR (upstairs function room). It’s only a 5 – 10 minute walk from Victoria Centre, or just a couple of stops by bus. Parking is available on Mansfield Road (a small parking charge applies until 8pm) and on North Sherwood Street.

We will have 5 teams in the Nottinghamshire Chess League next season (see the Nottinghamshire Chess Association’s website http://nottschess.org/), two in division one,  one in division 2, one in division 3 and one in division 5, therefore we can offer competitive league chess to players of all abilities.

We also hold several internal competitions, such as the club championship each May, an ECF graded rapidplay tournament which runs throughout the season, a pre-season 10 minute time handicap and various ad-hoc blitz events.
