Harrogate Chess Club

Welcome to the Harrogate Chess Club. Founded in 1884 this makes us one of the oldest chess clubs in the country. We are proud of our past, but at the same time we always look to the future. We continue to run three teams in the Yorkshire League and work closely with local junior organisers and the long established Harrogate Evening League.

Harrogate Chess Club Location

The chess club has moved to Robert Street, from Apley Grange. This is due to Apley Grange no longer accepting groups.
