About Us

We are a small, friendly club who meet on Wednesday nights (most weeks). We are affiliated with the Sheffield and District Chess Association and, while we do run teams in league competitions, the focus is firmly on enjoying chess rather than getting results.

New venue!

The Three Cranes Inn
29 High Street
S60 1PT

Plenty of free on-street 🅿 in town after 6pm (but do check the posted signs!)


Our captain Chris can be contacted on 07935 783414

You can also email Oliver (who runs the website). His email address is oliver@rotherham.cc

New members

Come and sample the amazing world of over-the-board chess! We welcome people of all ages, identities, and backgrounds to our club. However, if you're a very young player or a chess parent, you may be better served by a dedicated junior club such as SASCA where tailored events and coaching are available.

We currently do not charge any membership fees, although an English Chess Federation membership is required if you would like to play rated games in the league. We'd also be grateful if you would purchase drinks and snacks from the bar during your visit—please don't bring your own refreshments along.

We would be very pleased to get to know you over a few games of chess! If you're planning on coming for the first time, please get in touch using the details above so that we can make sure you get the best possible welcome ☺ Look forward to seeing you soon!
