Welcome to the Chichester Chess Club Website

Club BBQ

Chichester Chess Club meets on Monday evenings from 7.15 pm at The Fishbourne Centre, Blackboy Lane, Fishbourne.

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 internal club competitions and also, combined with the Bognor and Arun Chess Club, enter 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.

Once again congratulations to our A Team and captain Bill McDougall, on becoming the Portsmouth Chess League Champions for the sixth year in succession.

Also congratulations to Jaimie Wilson and his team for winning the Cole Plate.

Our A team captain Bill McDougall also won the Portsmouth Individual and the Ruth Rose Cup, which rounded off another excellent season for the Club
