Welcome to West Nottingham Chess Club

Welcome to the home of Nottingham’s largest chess club. The club welcomes players of all ages and standards – you can come along and play casual games in a friendly atmosphere, or join one of our teams in the Nottinghamshire League.

This site contains news about the club, its teams and its players, as well as links to other web sites of interest to chess players.

The club meets on Monday evenings from 5.30p.m. until 7:15p.m. for juniors and from 7:30 p.m. for adults and juniors involved in league matches at Bramcote Memorial Hall, Church Street, Bramcote, Nottingham NG9 3HD. Click on the links for more details about where to find us and how to join.

Chess Club suspended until September - updated March 2021

With the latest national lockdown and government guidance on the roadmap out of lockdown, it is not feasible to reopen the club until June 21st at the earliest. Given that we take a break for August, we concluded it was sensible to aim for a September re-opening. This is provisional, we will update you as things become more definite, but we are hopeful now to be able to find a way back to OTB chess! Take care of yourselves, we look forward to seeing you when we can.
