Welcome to one of the largest and most successful chess clubs in the West Midlands!

Since our venue (Minworth Social Club) reopened in mid-May 2021, our Chess Club has been starting to meet in person again on Monday and Thursday nights from 7pm for blitz and friendly games and analysis. Visitors and guests are always welcome.

And once lockdown substantially eases in mid-July or whenever, we will run our full range of activities: league and cup matches, mini-tourneys, club championships, simultaneous displays, etc. But we are already playing some chess on Mondays and Thursdays, so we look forward to seeing you right away!

Note that due to refurbishment, we may be meeting in the rear function room rather than the front lounge.

Sutton Coldfield Chess Club also runs a couple of teams online. Join us there (for free):

The Minworth Club has wheelchair access, a large free car park, and serves food and drink.

Note: Our former internet hosts (BT Community Webkit) shut down in May 2021 necessitating this new website which actually offers extra facilities like comments from visitors, smartphone compatibility, etc.
