About the Club

Loughborough Chess Club was founded about 1890 and currently is one of the strongest clubs in the Leicestershire Chess League.

The club has a number of tournaments we run from time to time:

We also play friendly games on our regular club nights.  The most popular format for these is 10-minute games, i.e. each player has 10 minutes to make all their moves.  Now that we have some electronic clocks, Fischer time controls (an initial time limit to which a few seconds are added per move) have also become increasingly popular.

People who continue to attend the club are expected to pay an annual subscription fee of £25.
