Our club room is spacious and well-lit, and the adjoining lounge and licensed bar provides an ideal place for players to meet, chat and analyse games.

The Club is affiliated to the Hertfordshire Chess Association (HCA) and our teams participate in the various League and Knock-Out competitions.

Club members may also participate in the County Individual Championships and County Teams.

Our annual weekend Congress which is a well established and popular event in the ECF Chess Calendar takes place around Easter.

In July and August, when the club is closed, we meet and play in the rear bar and courtyard garden of the Goat Inn, Sopwell Lane.
