New Milton Chess Club was established in 1975 to promote chess in New Milton through membership of the Bournemouth and District Chess League and the English Chess Federation. We cater for experienced players and beginners alike in a friendly atmosphere.

We are the only recognised chess club in the whole of the area covering New Milton, Lymington and Milford-on-Sea, and welcome enquiries from chess players throughout the district.

Please go to the other pages for more information on the Chess Club and on the rules of the Conservative Club which apply to visiting teams.

19 October 2020 РLeague and Club Competitions  remain suspended. We hope to resume Social Chess in the near future as we think we can meet the requirements of the Conservative Club and deal with the issues particular to the playing of chess in a Covid-secure way. More information will be posted shortly. 

The Dorset Chess website has information on online chess activities and other news, information and puzzles and games to occupy some of your time whilst OTB chess is suspended. We also have a page on this website about Online Chess explaining how to join in.
