Saxmundham and District Chess Club

Chess - for enjoyment and practice. We compete successfully in the Suffolk Chess League and other competitions. In addition to League and other matches, the club also runs internal competitions for members and, from time to time, has arranged special events such as evening quickplay tournaments and a simultaneous display. On many occasions members have been able to enjoy social events too, such as the Christmas Dinner! We would be pleased to welcome new members of any playing strength and would encourage anyone who is interested in chess to come along and visit us.

Notes

The club caters for serious and casual players alike, providing opportunities for those who wish to play competitively and for those who simply enjoy playing chess! Anyone wishing to learn how to play, or keen to improve their chess will find the club offers excellent prospects to do both. Whilst we don't currently have a dedicated ‘junior’ section, younger players are nonetheless welcome and we would encourage parents to come and visit us with their interested children on a club night. Full-rate adult annual membership: £20 (includes membership of the excellent Benhall & Sternfield Ex-Servicemen's Club too!) Reduced rates (e.g. junior/senior/unwaged) are also available.
