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.
We charge an annual membership fee which runs from September 1st to August 31st.
- £25 for adults (reduced to £15 for members of the Trades Club)
If it is competitive chess you’re after then you’ve come to the right place! We currently have four teams participating in the Calderdale Chess League and four in the Rapidplay League. Our ‘A Team’ won the League title last season and also won it in 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2018-19. They won the Rapidplay League last season 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.
