Welcome to Bedford Chess Club.

We meet from 7.30pm on Thursdays at the North End Social Club – see Venue page for more details.

Bedford is a well-established club with a healthy membership. New members are very welcome.  Whilst there is no minimum age, children under 16 are unlikely to feel at home unless they already have some chess experience.

STOP PRESS We are starting a junior section in the New Year and planning to hold the first session on 18th January 2018.  It will meet on Thursdays from 6pm until 7.30pm at The King Room, Bedford Modern Swimming Pool, Clarendon Street, Bedford.  If you are interested please contact us with your details and we will notify you when arrangements have been settled.

We have four teams in the Bedfordshire League so there is plenty of opportunity for competitive chess.

We hold a number of club competitions for serious chess and some more light-hearted events in July.
