Welcome to the Basildon Chess Club website ! We are a small but thriving club, with three teams in the Southend League and one in the Essex League. In addition to the competitive teams we always welcome beginners, juniors and anybody who just wants to play for fun. The club meets every Thursday from 7.30pm at Basildon Progression Centre, Witchards, Basildon. Click here for more information and a location map.

Match results for Basildon teams in the Essex and Southend League competitions, together with Club competition results, will be loaded as soon as I am notified. This will enable us to see how well (or otherwise) we are performing. There's also a facility for you to publish any interesting games you may have played or seen. The Games tab incorporates a chess game viewer and you can upload pgn files, or play through already uploaded games.

Click here for the (as yet incomplete) History Of Basildon Chess Club. The story comes to an abrupt end at the point where Laindon Community Centre is destroyed by fire, but Paul has promised further updates in the very near future (other long serving club members are also welcome to contribute !).
Finally, if anybody has any comments or further ideas for this site, feel free to email me.
