Established 1883







This list of chess websites extends beyond the Sheffield & DCA’s home territory, and is more or less relevant for Yorkshire chess-players generally.


S&DCA member clubs’ websites are listed on the Clubs page.


Many sites, especially those of clubs, experience difficulties in keeping going, so not all listed are necessarily being regularly maintained.
