Morpeth Chess Club meets every Wednesday (for exceptions, see the About Us page) at 7.15pm at Morpeth Rugby Club. Go up the stairs to the first floor and you'll find us there.
News update 29 July 2017 - We have a winner! The Morpeth Summer Rapidplay tournament finished on Weds 26 July. And despite a remarkable score of 19/20, Phil Eastlake could only come second to the winner George Ellames on 19.5 points. Well played George!
There's no better way to get better at chess than to join a club: you can never get the same enjoyment (or frustration!) playing on the internet.
If you live in Ashington, Blyth, Ponteland, Cramlington (or, of course, Morpeth), then we're your local club. Give David or Les a call and come down one Wednesday. We'll make sure that you get introduced to the regulars and set you up with a game. We've got players of all standards from the so-so to the pretty decent, so unless you're either a complete beginner or a former junior international, there's bound to be someone at about your level. If you are a former junior international, come down anyway: we'll make room for you on our A Team!
