About Us

When and Where We Meet

The club meets on Monday nights at The Railway Club, Hatchets Lane, Newark, NG24 2AF.

Play Competitive Chess

The club has a team in the first division of the Nottinghamshire League, where we generally meet strong opposition on the top boards. There is a second team in the fourth division. We now also have a third team in the fifth division to give juniors and beginners a chance to play competitive chess. Matches are played both home and away. Home matches take place on Mondays.

We play in the National Chess League which provides the opportunity to play against players outside of the Nottinghamshire League. In previous years Newark has entered a team in the minor section.

Play for Fun

If you prefer to play social chess then you are welcome to come to our club nights on Mondays. The club has a friendly atmosphere where people of all ages and abilities are welcome.
