Wimborne Chess Club was founded in 1977 and has recently relocated to the
First Wimborne Scout Hut in Redcotts Lane.
There is limited parking at the premises for 8-10 cars but ample car parking (e.g. Westfield and other town centre car parks) within a few minutes walk. The scout hut is at the far end of Redcotts Lane, which is 'behind' the Tivoli Theatre.
With over 40 members it is arguably the largest and most active club in the
Bournemouth and Dorset regions.
The club meets every Tuesday from 7pm until 11pm.
An informal chess coffee morning is held every Thursday from 10am at The Royal British Legion.
The club operates teams in both the Bournemouth & District, and the Dorset Leagues.
New members of any strength are always welcome, note that Juniors (under 16) must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
