Welcome to the Home page of the Lancashire Chess Association's official website.
Our aim is to promote the game of chess throughout the county of Lancashire. This site provides information about adult and junior chess within the county and gives details about affiliated chess clubs, their meeting times and their locations.
There has been a rash of Roses battles recently in this season's Northern Counties Chess Union Championships. The results at the various levels were as follows.
We understand that Yorkshire are not entering the U140 competition this season and so Lancashire's team will progress straight through to the national stages.
The completely revised, corrected and expanded "A History of Lancashire Chess from 1871 to 2011" by Mike Conroy is now available and selling fast.
This 500+ page bound hardback book with fly cover and colour photographs is ready for immediate dispatch. This edition has had many corrections and additions compared to the softback original. It contains many pictures and games of current players across Lancashire but there have been 150 copies produced only and so it is a collector’s special.
The price of the book is only £25. However current LCA members can pick up an absolute bargain at just £15!
Postage for the book will be £5.30 as a standard parcel or £8.30 First Class in the UK. However if we can arrange to meet somewhere convenient within Lancashire to hand over your copy then the postage cost will reduce to zero.

Lancashire Chess Association has available a Junior Players Course.
The aim of this course is to take new players to chess, teach them the basics of the game, and then show them techniques and strategies to bring them up to a standard where they can hold their own in a competitive game, whether it be league or congress.
The course manual is ideal for anybody running a junior chess club. To obtain a free copy, please get in touch through our Contact Us page.
