The 2016-17 have has been our best season in our known history when, in conjunction with Bognor, our three teams finished top of each of the three divisions of the Portsmouth Chess League. A phenomenal performance.

The team captains were: A Team Bill McDougall, B Team Mick Plumb and C Team  Michael Spence.

The full results, Individual averages and final league tables of this momentous season have now been archived. The results etc. for the current season can be found on the results page.

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.
