Welcome to Worthing Chess Club.

We are a friendly chess club with a growing membership, we welcome players of all ages and strengths.

Our membership ranges from the enthusiastic novice up to county strength players with grades ranging from 40 to 200. We also have a small, but growing, number of juniors.

From September to the end of May we hold club nights every Monday from 7:20pm for friendly games, club competitions and league matches.

** The 2016-17 season is now finished - we restart on 4th September 2017 with our AGM **

We meet at
