COVID-19 Status

Our sessions continue to be suspended for the time being.

While the COVID-19 lockdown has been relaxed, the Fennel Street Club remains closed on Wednesday nights, and Government restrictions on group gatherings remain in place.  Moreover, we need to protect our members from the transmission of infection through proximity and the handling of chess equipment.

We are hopeful that we will be able to reopen our doors in the not-too-distant future, but cannot make any guarantees at the moment.

Further updates will be posted in due course.

Welcome to Loughborough Chess Club

If you are based in or around Loughborough and are looking for somewhere to come and play chess, you've come to the right place.  We are an LRCA-affiliated club with teams playing in the Leicestershire Chess League.

Currently, club sessions are suspended. But normally, we meet year-round on Wednesday evenings at the Fennel Street Club from 7:30 onwards.  Anybody is welcome to drop in for a casual game.
