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 had 6 teams in the Nottinghamshire Chess League this season (see the Nottinghamshire Chess Association’s website http://nottschess.org/), two in division one and one in each of the other 4 divisions. Next season we will have 5 or 6 teams in the league, meaning 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 through the season, a pre-season 10 minute time handicap and ad-hoc 5 minute tournaments.
