Our club meets on Tuesdays in the upstairs function room at the Lincolnshire Poacher real ale pub, 161 Mansfield Road, NG1 3FR, 10 minutes walk from Victoria Centre, and a couple of stops by all NCT buses going up Mansfield Road (Stop FO12 ‘Huntingdon St’ coming from town, FO09 ‘Huntingdon St’ going towards town). Parking is available on Mansfield Road (a parking charge applies until 10pm) and just around the corner on North Sherwood Street.

We are located perfectly for anyone who likes chess and works or studies at Nottingham Trent University.

We enter several teams in the Nottinghamshire Chess League (see the NCA website https://www.nottinghamshirechess.org/ and the League Management System website https://ecflms.org.uk/lms/node/32133/home), and we run internal club competitions, casual and ECF rated (for example, our Rapidplay Swiss).

Playing chess over the board is completely different to playing online – arguably more enjoyable – and a better way to determine your chess ability.

Although things have improved regarding Covid, we continue to keep the windows open to allow for a good exchange of air in the room.
