Rothamsted Chess Club

If the game is more important than the result; if you enjoy convivial conversation and a bar; and if you’re not put off by an above- average quota of ‘old codgers’- Rothamsted Chess Club could be just the Club for you!

If you’d like to know more, contact Chris Dyer on, or call in and meet us on Tuesdays, 7pm till 10.00, at the Sports Pavilion, Rothamsted Research Centre, Harpenden.

We’re sorry but at present we don’t admit junior members (under 16) unless accompanied by a chess playing parent or responsible adult (due to the licensed bar and safeguarding responsibilities).

We meet regularly throughout the year and also compete in local chess leagues.

How To Find Us

The Club meets at the Sports Pavilion of Rothamsted Research, Harpenden. This is located opposite Harpenden Common nearby the A1081. Turn off the main road, following the road signs and after a short way enter the Research Institute site. Continue up a slight hill for about a quarter of a mile until you leave the buildings behind. On the left is a sports field and the Pavilion, with plenty of parking to the right.
