There's no better way to get better at chess than to join a club: you can never get the same enjoyment (or frustration!) playing on the internet.

If you live in Ashington, Blyth, Ponteland, Cramlington (or, of course, Morpeth), then we're your local club.  Give us a call or send an email and come down one Wednesday.  We'll make sure that you get introduced to the regulars and set you up with a game.  We've got players of all standards from the so-so to the pretty decent, so unless you're either a complete beginner or a former junior international, there's bound to be someone at about your level.  If you are a former junior international, come down anyway: we'll make room for you on our A Team!
