Fareham Chess Club has about thirty members and is based in Fareham, Hampshire. We meet every Tuesday evening for casual chess, club competitions and matches against other local clubs who participate in the Portsmouth and District League, and the Southampton League.

We welcome players of all standards and of all ages, including beginners and juniors. We also hold a Junior chess club on Saturday mornings. See the Contact page (under the Home menu) on where to find us and details of the venue.

With the Covid-19 pandemic affecting the whole world, all chess activities are obviously suspended for the foreseeable future. But you can still play chess online, with the Fareham chess club setting up its own Lichess team, still on a Tuesday evening. Sign up for Lichess at lichess.org, its free to join.

The 25th Dorset rapidplay takes place on the 15th March 2020. For further details see the Dorset Chess webpage here.

Provisional date for the next Club Rapidplay is 21st April.
