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.
