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.

We meet at

The Tarring Club
(formerly the West Tarring Working Mens Club)
118 - 122 Pavilion Road
