Morpeth Chess Club meets every Wednesday (for exceptions, see the Contact Us page) at 7.15pm at Morpeth Rugby Club. Go up the stairs to the first floor and you'll find us there. This website has information for people wanting to join the club and info for people who just want to get better at chess.
Chess at Morpeth - 2019-20 club competitions. We will be running two club competitions this season:
Simultaneous Chess Event
18th December 2019
Roger Coathup has again agreed to take on all comers on Wednesday 18th December starting at 6.30 pm for 6.45 pm.
To enter, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The entry fee is £5 in aid of the Braille Chess Association.
Light refreshments will be provided.
Roger has been doing this for a number of years and so far we have raised over £1,000.
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 James 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!
