About Us

Harrogate Chess Club was founded in 1884, making it one of the country's longest established clubs. 125 years on we continue to thrive, attracting new members and running three teams in the Yorkshire Chess Association league. There are also many internal club competitions and other events such as simultaneous displays are organised throughout the year.

Harrogate also has a local evening chess league and a correspondance chess club that are not organised directly by the club but have strong links with it.

New members of any age are always welcome!
