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 18 February 2018 - League update We could still be second! Morpeth A team haven't quite maintained their early season form, but we are still in the running for second place in the Northumberland league . Meanwhile the B team are tucked close in behind the leaders in Division Two and, with games in hand, could sprint off to promotion in the final straight. The C team have a solid middle-of-the-table place in Division Three.
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!
