Welcome to the North Norfolk Chess Club website

We play in the Norfolk League and have 3 teams, the Seals (Division 2), Crabs and Shrimps (both Division 3).

We run a Club Championship throughout the season (standard play), and this year also a rapidplay competition.

If you love playing chess or would like to learn how to play, then please contact us, or just call in on a club evening and have a chat and a game.

Alex Club Championship Game 02/11/18 French Defence Classical Steinitz Variation

My club championship game against Paul Sneesby last night (02/11/2018). I played black and faced 1. d4. After e6, which surprises some white d4 players, he played e4 and we had a french – which i am happy playing.

I missed a tactic on move 11. Instead of Qb4, I should play Ndxe5, and if fxe, then Qh5+ double attacking the Knight on d4, therefore winning a pawn.

Comments/ideas/mistakes etc would be good.

Rapidplay Friendly Friday 24th August – Photos

Players from North Norfolk and St. John’s,  together with some guests from other clubs,  took part in a friendly rapidplay match  over 14 boards. With everyone playing twice and 25 minutes on each clock it was a enjoyable evening with some close fought games and time scrambles. Thanks to Alan Holmes and Peter Hodkinson for organising the event and to David Payne for the pictures.

4th Annual Lowestoft Rapidplay Tournament

Lowestoft chess club will be holding its 4th annual rapidplay tournament on Sunday 18th November 2018 at Parkhill Hotel.
There will be two sections – open and under 150.
All the details are on the attached form and all the usual rules apply.
Last year we had 35 players from all over the country and I am hoping to beat that this year. Please be aware the event is limited to 40 players due to space constraints.
