Bedford Chess Club has managed to meet very infrequently during the past year but is now happy to announce re-opening plans!

The club plans to re-open from the evening of Thursday 24th June and continue to meet during the Summer months.   Whilst we all hope for a full return to normality, some anti-COVID measures may still need to be taken (masks, sanitiser, social distancing etc.) but this will be decided upon by the committee nearer the time.  Unfortunately, the recent Indian variant and continued high levels of infection in the Bedford area mean that these plans will be under review up until the date so it is advised that you check back on the website nearer the time for go ahead confirmation.

The Junior club plans to re-open from September but, again, this is subject to review.  Whilst anti-COVID measures may be appropriate for the Adult club, it is highly impractical to try to apply these in the case of the Juniors.  Further information will be published here nearer the time.

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.

We have recently started a junior club which meets on Thursdays from 6pm until 7.30pm – see Junior Club page for details.

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.
