Welcome to Darnall and Handsworth Chess Club. We provide a friendly and social club for chess lovers of all abilities. New members of any age and gender (from Grandmaster to beginners!) are always welcome. The main tournaments we enter are the Sheffield and District League and the Richardson / Plate Cups. We also organise a FIDE rated rapidplay event every year.

Join our club

Feel free to pop down on Monday evenings (except bank holidays), 7.30pm and we will do our best to ensure there will be a member of the same standard around to give you a good game or two!

Support our club

Support us whilst having a bit of a flutter! The purpose of the '64 Club' is to raise funds to meet club running costs, e.g. room hire or the purchase of chess equipment, books or other instructional material.
