Cardiff Chess

Cardiff Chess Club has been around for over 130 years, promoting and supporting the playing of chess in Cardiff and the surrounding area. We cater for players of all ages and standards, from beginners up to international players.

We meet at the YMCA Plas at 2 Shakespeare Street, CF24 3ES. Tuesday nights from 7pm are for our young and less experienced members, and Wednesday nights from 7pm are for those looking to play more serious chess. On Tuesday nights in June, July and August, we’ll be running our annual ‘Summer programme‘, with friendly tournaments around different themes which are open for everyone to take part.
