Welcome to one of the largest and most successful chess clubs in the West Midlands!
Our venue (the Minworth Club) reopened in mid-May 2021, and since then we have been meeting there in person from about 7pm every Monday night (our main night and match night) but also every Thursday night. Visitors and guests are always welcome.
The Minworth Club has wheelchair access, a large free car park, and serves food and drink. Address: Minworth Club & Lodge, Robinsons Way (off Water Orton Lane), Sutton Coldfield B76 9BB
The new league seasons will re/start in October 2021 when we will be fielding at least five teams, so we are continually recruiting players of all standards. Out of season we run mini-tourneys, club championships, lectures, simultaneous displays, etc. Of course there are always friendly games and informal analysis occurring too.
Note that very occasionally we may meet in the (larger) rear function room rather than the front lounge. We do not meet on Bank Holidays, or on 24th December to 1st January.
Please consult our other pages for more information, refer to our FAQ page, or ask us any questions through our Contact page. Alternatively, simply turn up on a Monday night!
Sutton Coldfield Chess Club also run a couple of teams online. Join us there (for free):

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.
