Welcome to the Daventry & District Chess Club


The club has been playing in Daventry for many years.  Our membership varies between 12 and 20 players.  We have junior members the youngest we ever beeing about 7 and our oldest is... well the silver fox is retired!

We welcome all players of any age, sex or ability.  All we ask is you have a love for the game.  The club plays in the friendly atmosphere of the Clubs Conference/Meeting room upstairs.  The club has a well stocked bar and a selection of local beers. The Chess "Season" is from the first Wednesday in September till the end of May, however some members do play during the summer break. The times are from 7:30pm till 10:30pm. During the season feel free to come along any Wednesday evening or contact one of our members found on the contacts page.

We currently have 3 teams in the Leamington League. 

The A team which consists of 4 players in Division 1, the other teams have 3 players in Division 3 & 4. Players in both teams are rotated such that most club members get to play League games. The club also plays in both team and individual knockouts.  Some members also play in local congresses. When the member numbers increase we can increase the number of teams. We do not currently play in the Northampton League, but this is mainly due to numbers. In the past the club had teams in both Leagues

Within the club we also play for the internal championship cups:-


Club Championship
Quickplay Championship
Lightning Championship
Junior Championship
