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 26 April 2017 - The Morpeth Summer Rapidplay tournament is starting on Weds 3 May and continuing every Weds through to 26 July. To enter, just turn up and start playing - all moves in 30 mins and you can play each opponent up to four times. The tournament winner will be the person who gets the most points over the three months, regardless of how many games they play.
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!
