We meet on Monday evenings from 7.15 pm at The Fishbourne Centre, Blackboy Lane, Fishbourne. The Centre offers us excellent facilities for playing chess. Please click on the “how to find us” page. Also from here you will find a link to The Fishbourne Centre’s own website which sets out the many activities the Centre has to offer.
We are a friendly and welcoming chess club catering for all standards of play from beginners to County players. It is not known when the club was first formed but we have records going back well over 100 years.
We run three internal club competitions and also, combined with the Bognor and Arun Chess Club, enter four teams in the Portsmouth and District Chess League but, if preferred, there is also the opportunity to play a more casual form of chess. So anyone of any standard is welcome to come along to see if playing in a club environment is for you. Ladies and juniors are particularly welcome.
