About Us


The Trades Club

Club Night
We meet on Mondays from 7.30pm

The Trades Club, Holme Street, Hebden Bridge.

We have not been able to reinstate the junior club since the COVID pandemic. We hope to have it up and running again soon. Get in touch if you would like us to inform you of its return.

Membership Fees
We charge an annual membership fee which runs from September 1st to August 31st.

  • £30 for adults (reduced to £20 for members of the Trades Club)

League Chess
If it is competitive chess you’re after then you’ve come to the right place! Last season (2023-24) we had three squads participating in the Calderdale Chess League and four in the Rapidplay League.  Our ‘A Team’ won the League title in 2022-23 and also won it in 2011-12, 2012-13, 2018-19 and 2021-22. We also won the Rapidplay League in 2022-23 and are also the current holders of the Team Lightning Chess title.

In August 2018, members of The Golden Lion chess team in Todmorden merged with Hebden Bridge Chess Club and in that 2017-18 year, they retained the League 1 title they won as Todmorden ‘A’ in 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 . Due to the COVID pandemic and resulting changes to the League structure, we have now merged Golden Lion players with the rest of Hebden Bridge chess club and all our teams play their home fixtures at the Trades Club.

  1. Have just been looking at your very impressive website. I’d be grateful if you could add the following to your list of useful and interesting websites:

    By way of information, the 2014 Leeds Chess Congress will be held Friday-Sunday 11-13 July (one week before the start of the British Championships) at the same venue as in the last 2 years, ie Wellington Hill Residents Association clubhouse, 21-23 Ringwood Drive, Leeds, LS14 1AR.
    Full details about the congress will be published in January.
