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.

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.
