About Woodseats Chess Club:

Before the current lock-down in the UK, we used to meet up every Monday evening from 7:30 at The Abbey on Chesterfield Road (in the upstairs function room). We’re a friendly club and cater to all levels of play. You’re most welcome to drop by and enjoy a friendly game of chess with us. Please check our website for updates as to when we're likely to re-open.
