Welcome to our website.

Our venue is about 10 minutes walk up from Nottingham’s city centre, at the Lincolnshire Poacher real ale pub, 161 Mansfield Road, NG1 3FR (upstairs function room). It’s also only a couple of stops by bus (all routes north). Parking is available on Mansfield Road (a parking charge applies until 8pm) and on North Sherwood Street.

We meet on Tuesday evenings throughout the year, welcoming both members and non-members, whether you wish to play for us in the league or just have some friendly games.

We have 5 teams in the Nottinghamshire Chess League (see the Nottinghamshire Chess Association’s website https://nottschess.org/): two in division one; one in division 2; one in division 3; one in division 5. Therefore we can offer competitive chess to players of all abilities.

We also have several internal competitions: the club championship each May; an ECF graded rapidplay tournament which runs throughout the season; a pre-season 10 minute time handicap; a lightning event (10 seconds on the buzzer) and various ad-hoc blitz events.

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