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 or the Derby and District 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 6:15 p.m. until 7:30 p.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.

Closed on Bank Holiday then back for Club Championships

Don't forget there is no chess on Monday 29th May. Monday 5th June is the start of our club championships with both junior and open sections. Good luck!

Membership form

Our membership form for new members this season is available to download. For more information go to our Membership page. To all league players, please don't forget to join the ECF at Bronze level or higher, to avoid paying the £2.50 game fee for each game!

Junior session

The junior session runs from 6:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. Parents are asked to collect their children well before 7:30 p.m. so that the later match session can start on time. Children playing in matches, or who have other family members playing in matches, are welcome to attend during the post-7:30 p.m. session.

Club Championships 2017
