Ringwood Chess Club

Ringwood is a long established and friendly club with one of the best venues in the region. We play in the Southampton, Dorset, and Bournemouth and District Leagues, as well as offering members the chance to play casual games.

We are the nearest chess club to many of the surrounding towns and villages and are well placed to serve Fordingbridge, Verwood, Burley, St Leonards, West Moors and Ferndown.

We are always on the look out for new members, from beginners to experienced league players.
