Welcome to the official home page of Felixstowe Chess Club. A big site for a small club! The club was founded on October 16th 1945.
Seventeen people attended a meeting held at Felixstowe Secondary School. Dr. Johnston was elected to the chair and Mr. E. R. Springham was elected as Hon. Secretary & Treasurer.
It was proposed by Mr. Herring and seconded by Mr. Goose that the club be called "Felixstowe Chess Club".
Felixstowe Chess club meets on Tuesday evenings at the The Dooley pub, normally from 7pm until around 10pm during the chess playing season from September to April. We play friendly chess and hold club tournaments from time to time. We currently have three teams entered in to the Suffolk Chess League.
The club plays rapidplay and standard / fischer timing matches and the season runs from about October to April the following year. All new members are welcome regardless of their playing strength.
We expect only two things: A love of the game and a willingness to learn.
All new members are welcome, so please come along if you are interested.
If you want to learn the game of chess, or to improve your play then get in touch with us and come along to one of our club nights.
