Taunton Chess Club meets at St Michael’s Church, Galmington, Taunton, TA1 4TP

Taunton Chess Club meets every Tuesday from 7.30pm to 10.30pm from early September to late May.

Our venue recently changed and we meet at St. Michael’s Church, Pitts Close, Galmington, Taunton, TA1 4TP 

The club has around 20 members, ranging from beginners through to county players. We enter teams in the local chess leagues and until recently were back-to-back Division One and Somerset Cup Champions.

We also run a closely-fought internal club championship and hold a yearly lightning tournament, in addition to casual games on club nights.

We are always interested in taking on new members, young or old, and of any playing strength. If you’d like to join and take part, please come along or get in touch.

We look forward to meeting you and having a game.

Due to coronavirus Taunton Chess Club has currently suspended their meetings at St Michaels Church until further notice.  Stay safe everybody.
