Playing chess in Northumberland's county town


Coronavirus update: Morpeth Wednesday club nights suspended

Following advice from the ECF on the coronavirus, the Northumberland Chess Association has suspended all inter club games including the individual championship matches.

In view of this, we think it advisable to suspend club nights until further notice. It is unlikely that we will return to over-the-board chess until September 2020 at the earliest.  For the time being, we are playing online instead, for details see below.

Morpeth Chess Club online

Morpeth Chess Club has gone online at and

You can set up an account on either site for free and then just search for 'Morpeth Chess Club'.

We have virtual chess club nights on every Wednesday at 7.15pm for games, analysis and chat. Hope to see you there!

For added realism, don't allow yourself to get a beer from the fridge after 'the bar closes' at 8.30pm, but you can still make yourself a coffee anytime.

Join Our Club

There's no better way to get better at chess than to join a club: you can never get the same enjoyment (or frustration!) playing on the internet.

If you live in Ashington, Blyth, Ponteland, Cramlington (or, of course, Morpeth), then we're your local club.  Give David or James a call and come down one Wednesday.  We'll make sure that you get introduced to the regulars and set you up with a game.  We've got players of all standards from the so-so to the pretty decent, so unless you're either a complete beginner or a former junior international, there's bound to be someone at about your level.  If you are a former junior international, come down anyway: we'll make room for you on our A Team!
