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/), one in each division, 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, pre-season and pre-Christmas time-handicap swiss events, and ad-hoc 5 minute tournaments.

For more information please see our ‘Club Information’ page or contact our club secretary Brian Hayward at bmhayward@aol.com or on 0115 9873784.
