The online home of chess in Stowmarket


Welcome to Stowmarket Chess Club

You’re probably here because you’re interested in chess and live in or near Stowmarket, Suffolk. If so, you’re in good company. Our club welcomes newcomers. Whether you’re fairly new to chess or a seasoned expert, it would be great if you could join us.

Our Club meets regularly

We meet during the chess season, roughly September to May, on Tuesdays from 7:30pm at the Rookery Bowls Club in Stowmarket. You can find a map here.

The club competes in the leagues and cup competitions of the Suffolk County Chess Association, the Bury Area Chess League and occasionally in other events.

During the Summer months we meet for Social Chess provided enough players wish to come. It’s best to phone or email to ensure you will get a game.
