In the 2017-18 season the BCC fielded two teams in league competitions and both were relegated. In 2018-19 the first team will play in Division 4 of the BDCL and the second team in Division 4 of the WDCL. The club caters for all levels of chess ability. We also welcome beginners and juniors as well as those wishing to play friendly games only. Tea, coffee and chocolate biscuits are available free of charge and visitors are encouraged to come a few times to the club without any obligation before deciding whether to become members. A discount applies for first year membership.
The club's annual general meeting will take place on Tuesday 25 June 2019 at the Walker Hall beginning at 7.30pm.
