Places are available in the Rose Forgrove teams for matches played in the Leeds League on a Wednesday evening. Leeds is the first league in Yorkshire to introduce an incremental time control. Matches are played with a time control of G80+10, which is 80 minutes per game with a ten-second increment added after each move from move one. New members and former members of all playing strengths are welcome to join the club. If you are interested in playing for the club please contact Clive Davies by email to clivewdavies@hotmail.com

Rose Forgrove Chess Club, the largest chess club in Leeds, was established in the 1970s. During the league season, we play in various competitions organised by the Leeds Chess Association (Wednesdays) and the Yorkshire Chess Association (Saturdays).

In the off-season, we run a club championship and a variety of club nights and competitions. Players of any age, experience or ability are welcome to join us at our home venue on Wednesdays from 7 p.m., or to contact us via the Contact form, or by email to roseforgrovechessclub@gmail.com.

Our home venue is Roundhay Parochial Hall, Fitzroy Drive, Roundhay, Leeds, LS8 4AB.

There is no membership fee. There is a board fee for any game played at our home venue and for away games played on a Saturday. The fee is currently £3.00, with concessions for unwaged pensioners (£2.50), unwaged (£2) and juniors under 18 (£1), or instead pay a yearly board fee of £75.
