Corona Virus

We have now resumed social and league chess.  We ask players to wear a facemask when not seated. We also have an online club and are organising chess events online.


With teams in the Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Worcestershire leagues, we cater for chess players of all standards. We have teams catering for players of all abilities, ranging from our first team in division 2 of the Birmingham league to a team specially for less experienced players in the third division of the friendly Wolverhampton League.

The chess season lasts from September to May but during the Summer we hold internal events to keep in practice.

Experienced players

For the more experienced player we will assess your level of play and place you in the team best suited to your ability. We are able to register players for teams at any stage of the season.

Less experienced players

If you have never played competitive chess before, we will teach you how to write down the moves, use a clock and give you tips to improve your play. If you do not want to play competitive chess you are welcome to come along to Stourbridge chess club for a friendly game and a pint (or two).

We look forward to seeing you !
