Redland Park Church - our home venue.
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.

|6 Mar||We're having an informal evening at the Club next Tuesday, 10 March, starting at 7.30. There will be a team quickplay event (devised by Mike Harris, who says that teams will share one clock; details of this unusual event will be revealed on the night!). Looking forward to what I hope will be an enjoyable evening for as many of us as are able to attend (do try to come if possible!)|
|5 Dec||We shall be having a Horfield & Redland club evening on Tuesday 23 December. The exact format isn't decided but basically the idea will be to have some light-hearted chess games at a quick rate of play and then for those who fancy it to repair to a nearby curry-house. Play starts at 7.30.|
Our season curtain-raiser is an
informal night at our usual (U.R.C.) venue on 2
This should be a good opportunity to brush off the
cobwebs and prepare for the coming season. Anyone who
might like to join us this would be a good time to come
Our first competitive matches are on 9 September. The fixture list is now available, so it will be possible to put dates in diaries. Best wishes for what we hope will be a successful season!
|22 May||Club championship results: Andrejs 3/3 Club Champion and winner of Davies Trophy;
Kajetan, Derek, Christopher, Peter 3/5; Carl, Frank 2/2;
Mike H, Phil, Nigel 2/5 (Nigel U150 Trophy winner);
Mike L, Harvey 1/2;
Rob, Graham 1/5;
Congratulations to our winners. The last game to finish decided the championship between Andrejs Olehnovics and Kajetan Wandowicz so there was no easy option for the engravers. They reached a theoretically drawn, but difficult to defend, rook + h and f pawn v rook ending. Kajetan missed the stalemate resource so Andrejs completed an impressive 3/3 against rivals Kajetan, Christopher and Derek to win the event from just one evening’s results.
