About Us

Wimborne Chess Club was founded in 1977 and with over 40 members it is arguably the largest and most active club in the Bournemouth and Dorset regions.
During the league season we meet at the
First Wimborne Scout Hut in Redcotts Lane, every Tuesday from 7pm until 11pm.
During June, July and August we meet at
The Royal British Legion, every Tuesday from 7pm until 11pm.
An informal chess coffee morning is held every Thursday from 10am at The Royal British Legion.
The club operates teams in both the Bournemouth & District, and the Dorset Leagues.
New members of any strength are always welcome, note that Juniors (under 16) must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
