Wells Chess Club

Welcome to Wells Chess Club. We are a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting the joys and benefits of chess.

We are launching our Inaugural Wells Chess Congress which will run as a 5-round Swiss from 8th to 10th March. It will be great to see lots of players coming to Wells for some great chess and a chance to enjoy this beautiful city. Sign Up Here!

There are 25-30 members of Wells Chess Club with many regularly competing in the Somerset League as well as regional and national tournaments. Our players abilities range from beginners up to 2300. We're pleased to offer coaching from a FIDE trainer and current Somerset Champion, so no matter your skill level, we'll help you improve and have fun.

Join us at the White Hart on Sadler Street in Wells every Wednesday from 7.30pm, or attend our Junior Club meeting from 6pm to 7pm!

We are very grateful to our local sponsors;
