Uxbridge Chess Club
Welcome to the chess club for Uxbridge, Hayes, Hillingdon, West Drayton, Yiewsley, Ickenham, Ruislip and surrounding areas. Formerly known as Hayes Chess Club, after 57 years based in Hayes, we moved to central Uxbridge in late 2013. To reflect our geographical position, we are renamed Uxbridge Chess Club, though of course we represent both towns and the surrounding area still.
The Chess Club was founded in 1954 and we play in a spacious room at The Ivy Leaf Club, Uxbridge. We enjoy all the advantages of being part of a large club, such as events, snooker, cheap beer, socialising and more.
Uxbridge Chess Club has been serving the local community with chess for over six decades. The members are friendly and enthusiastic about chess. Whether you need a social venue or to stretch your competitive legs, Uxbridge Chess Club has it all. At Uxbridge Chess Club, the goal is to provide you with a friendly, fun and interesting environment to enjoy all aspects of chess.
We organise social events such as a Club Simultaneous with a visiting Grandmaster, Christmas and Summer Lightning Tournaments, often hilarious, and friendly matches, a Club Championship and sometimes an enlightening lecture.
Uxbridge Chess Club competes in two different leagues and two online leagues.
Currently we enter eight teams in the Hillingdon and District Chess League (the local league), and two in the Bucks League. However with a growing membership, we hope to expand the number of teams next season.
