Heywood Chess Club

Heywood Chess Club


Since 1995 we have been meeting in Heywood to play chess.  We have members varying in strength from novice to grandmaster and therefore are able to cater for all levels of experience.

We are currently entering 4 teams in the Central Lancashire, East Lancashire and Manchester Leagues.

We play at Hopwood Constitutional Sports and Social Club, an excellent venue less than a couple of minutes from Junction 19 of the M62. Besides the function room where matches are played, there is also a large lounge room available to all Heywood Chess Club members for relaxation. Club night is Wednesday evening, with games beginning at 7.30.

Why not ask your friends or work colleagues do they fancy playing chess? Everybody welcome, whatever your age. If you would like to visit one evening, please get in touch via our Contact Us form. We look forward to meeting you at our venue.
