Given the pandemic, Cambridge City Chess Club is currently able to host ONLY PRE-ARRANGED FORMAL MATCHES. Unfortunately we cannot function as a "drop-in" chess club, open to visitors. Persons seeking to play informal, coffeehouse-style chess might consider this weekly no-cost alternative setting.

Informal chess opportunities for juniors, including some that offer instruction and training, or are schools-based, are listed and linked in the "Chess for Kids" tab.


Cambridge City Chess Club welcomes players of all strengths. We have about 35 members and participate in local Leagues. League teams are configured annually before the start of September.

We meet on Wednesdays at 7:30pm September through May at St. Augustine's Church Hall, 101 Richmond Road, Cambridge CB4 3PS. Parking can be found in these residential streets.

Please select the tabs above to get more information about our activities.
