Broadstairs Chess Club was founded in 1887 and meets on Monday evenings from 7.30 at the Hilderstone Annexe, 10 St Peter’s Road, Broadstairs CT10 2JW. The club is open for most of the year with two-week breaks at Christmas and in August. Players of all ages and abilities are welcome and the club’s child protection policy is available on request. There is plenty of chess available: apart from the club championship, the Goodall Cup, named after W.F.Goodall, long-serving secretary during the first half of the last century, we have a knockout competition, a summer swiss and a blitz tournament to round off the season in July. Broadstairs enters teams in three of the Thanet League competitions with home and away fixtures throughout the season as well as team and individual buzzer tournaments.
