About Us

We are a small, friendly club who meet on Wednesday nights (most weeks). We are affiliated with the Sheffield and District Chess Association and, while we do run teams in league competitions, the focus is firmly on enjoying chess rather than getting results.

New venue!

The Three Cranes Inn
29 High Street
S60 1PT

Plenty of free on-street 🅿 in town after 6pm (but do check the posted signs!)


Our captain Chris can be contacted on 07935 783414

You can also email Oliver (who runs the website). His email address is oliver@rotherham.cc

Come and sample the amazing world of over-the-board chess! We welcome people of all ages, identities, and backgrounds to our club.

We would be very pleased to get to know you over a few games. If you're planning on coming for the first time, please get in touch beforehand so that we can make sure you get the best possible welcome ☺
