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.

 League chess restarted in the week commencing 11 October 2021. The fixture lists and results can be found on this site. Social Chess is taking place at the Conservative Club on Tuesday evenings and Thursday afternoons. In accordance with current Government guidelines, mask wearing is optional . 

The Dorset Chess website has information on online chess activities and other news, information and puzzles and games to occupy some of your time if you prefer not to play OTB chess at the present time. We also have a page on this website about Online Chess explaining how to join in.
