Chess Game

Are children welcome?

We welcome all ages and abilities. Children should be accompanied by a responsible adult. We do not currently have a children's section as such, but would be glad to explore this as the club develops. Wotton Hall Chess Club in Barnwood do have a dedicated children's section meeting earlier in the evening - their contact details are on the North Glos chess website.

Do you offer a trial membership?

We won't ask you to join until you have been to a couple of sessions and are sure you want to be part of the club.

Is there parking?

Yes. There is free parking at the Victory Club on chess club evenings If the car park is full (which is rare), we have been kindly allowed to park in the Charles Russell Speechlys car park next door.

Where do you play?

We have a dedicated Chess Room upstairs at the Victory Club, Lypiatt Road, Cheltenham GL50 2SY - right in the heart of Cheltenham

When do you play?

Club nights are on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7.30pm. League matches and other events may be held on other midweek days.

Is talking allowed?

Please respect competitive chess and maintain silence in the chess room while league matches are in progress. Dates of home fixtures are available on the Fixtures page. On club nights when there isn't a league fixture, we play more social chess and a reasonable level of conversation and analysis is expected.
