Halesowen Chess Club was formed in October 1974 by founder members Dave Arthur (secretary) and John Brookes (chairman). It's club rooms were Halesowen Athletic and Cycling Club.

In 1974/75 the club entered a team in the Worcester County League for the first time and in the following year a team was also entered into the Birmingham and District Chess League (in Division 6). In 1976/77 this team was promoted to Division 5 and finished 3rd.

On 1st December 1977, the Club moved to the Leasowes Community Centre.

In 1977/78 three teams were entered in the B'ham League, finishing 3rd in Division 5, 7th in Division 9, and 3rd in Division 10. In 1978/79 another team was added in the B'ham League. Results were 7th in Division 4, 3rd in Division 8, 4th in Division 9, and 4th in Division 10.

In 1979/80 yet another team was added, giving five teams entered in the B'ham League, competing in Divisions 4, 7, 8, 9, & 10. Also, two teams entered the Worcester County League (one team in each division) and one team in Worcester and District Div 1 after winning Division 2 the previous season.

In 2002 Halesowen joined the WDCL.
