Yorkshire Chess Clubs and Organisations

 

(under construction)

 

The Yorkshire Chess Association runs internal county competitions, and fields teams representing the county.  The greater amount of organised chess in the county, however, is run by independent town/city-based local associations of clubs (see below).  Other organisations include some chess congress organising bodies (see below) which are independent of the said associations of clubs, and two county-wide organisations promoting junior chess (see below).

 

The following table lists 67 clubs showing those associations or leagues in which they are involved (sometimes more than one), for key to which see second table below.

Some clubs have websites and some do not.  Sometimes where there is a website it is not maintained very well, if at all.  Attempting to list clubs’ website addresses is therefore of doubtful value.  (Try a search engine.)
