About Us

We are a small but friendly club that has been running since 1968 providing a venue for like minded souls to have a game of chess in sociable and relaxed manner.
We submit teams to play in the Warrington League, sometimes the Merseyside League and have ran some events of our own.
We play regulary each week either competitivly against other teams or socially among our members.

Don't want to be in our teams, that's fine, join us to have just a friendly game with nothing more than your pride at stake.

Come along, see what's happening, play, learn, chat, all are welcome.

For further information contact acting Secretary Sean Murphy:

Junior and Youth Memberships

We have a dynamic Junior and Youth section, though there are no special arrangements for younger players.

Players aged 10 upwards may join for some friendly competition and advice.

While basic teaching of the rules are beyond our remit, we offer the chance for younger players further their game and experience a more mature style of play.

Play against other club members of similar age (or otherwise), have fun and improve your game!
Some of our strongest players are under 16.
NB: Please note the club is not registered to look after unattended children. It is expected that a parent or guardian will be present to supervise for the duration of each child's visit.
(This also applies to any on-line participation.)

Match Fixtures List

The club is a member of the Warrington and District Chess League (WDCL)

New Season is starting October 2021

We have two teams entered in the Warrington League to match our wits against other nearby clubs. The league is aligned to the English Chess Federation(ECF) which is the main national ruling body for chess in the UK promoting chess playing in the UK and also represents the country in chess matters internationally.
All League team players will earn a chess 'grade' providing a standardised measure of ability across the country.

An up-to-date list and results can be seen here on the LMS site that is now being used to record match results, replacing the manual process run by the WDCL in earlier years.
