Competitive Chess


For those of you who are interested in playing competitive chess we have a number of options.

League Chess

The Club enters three teams in the Bournemouth and District Chess League. In 2019-20, these will compete in Divisions 2,3 and 5.

More information on the B&DCL  can be found at

Internal tournaments

We also have internal tournaments which comprise  a knockout tournament for all members and an all-play-all tournament for our stronger players.

External Tournaments

Some members also enter a number of chess congresses each year on an individual basis. Some are local events within Dorset and others are further afield.
