Horfield & Redland is one of the top chess clubs in the Bristol area. We run four teams in the Bristol & District Chess League.

Whatever your playing strength, you are very welcome to come along to one of our club nights. You are under no obligation to join until you've had a few visits to try us out. We play at 1 Redland Park, next to the United Reform Church, just off Whiteladies Road (see map). We are normally open on Tuesdays from 7:30pm to 10:30pm between September and April. Click here to check the list of open dates and here for the Club Secretary's contact details.

24 Nov The League Congress is on this weekend 27-29 November. For late entries see the League website.
23 Nov We will be holding a club Christmas quickplay on 22 December, followed by the option of going for a curry.
23 Oct We will be holding an open night on 27 October. There probably will be an informal quick-play tournament. Non members welcome.

Early notice that on the two Tuesdays in March when there are no scheduled fixtures we hope to run the Club Championship - i.e., 8 and 29 March: dates to put in your diary if you already have your 2016 diary!.
23 Oct Steve Dilleigh and Peter Kirby are competing in the Guernsey Open. Wtih 2 of the 7 rounds to go, Steve has 3 points and Peter has 2.5.
21 Sep Horfield's Roger Pearce had a great time at the Steve Boniface Memorial FIDE Open last month, starting on 3/3, including beating IM Chris Beaumont and the other top seed. A win against Carl Bicknell in the final round would have meant he finished first and secured a British Championship place, but Carl triumphed to finish on 100%. Roger's grading performance was 222! Here is Roger's victory over Leon Burnett.
21 Sep The next Chipping Sodbury Rapidplay will be on Saturday 10 October. Entry form.
