Sheffield Nomads Chess ClubSheffield Nomads Chess Club


Sheffield Nomads meet most Tuesday nights at the Trades & Labour Club, 200 Duke Street, Sheffield, S2 5QQ from 7.30pm onwards. We have three teams spread across the four divisions of the Sheffield league, with players of all abilities, and are always on the look out for new members. So, if you’ve not played for a while, or are facing your opponents online instead, why not get in touch so we can arrange for you to come down to the club one evening for some over the board games. If you find you like it, there are plenty of opportunities to take part in competitive league matches. Alternatively casual games can be played.

All ages, genders, heights, weights, nationalities, hairstyles, and abilities welcome.
