Chess In The Park

With Autumn well upon us we have decided to abandon Chess In The Park in favour of Chess In The Pub. We are now meeting in the Victoria pub (popularly known as the Little Vic) in King Street, Newcastle, just up the hill from Newcastle Chess Club and the Borough Arms. We meet every Wednesday from 12:00 until 17:00.

July Grading List

The July 2020 Grading List has just been published. Please click on the tab at top of the page to view it. 

Chess In The Park

As most Club's venues are not open for 'Over The Board' chess at the moment, the Club have been running outdoor sessions at Brampton Park in Newcastle. We are meeting every Wednesday at 11:00 until about 15:00, using the tables just outside the Cheeky Monkeys Play Area & Cafe.The sessions are not limited to Fenton Members - anybody is welcome to come along and play.

The cafe has recently re-opened so you can get food and drink (including beers !!) if you want to eat there.

New Venue

As you have probably heard, The Tollgate are not re-opening following the Covid-19 lockdown meaning that, not for the first time, we have lost our venue. Fortunately, Grenville has been making enquiries and it looks probable that we will be moving to the Blurton Social Club when they re-open. We will keep you informed as to when we will be able to move in.
