Bolton & District Chess League is a friendly and welcoming organisation for all those with an interest in playing chess against other human opponents, over the board. With over 40 years of history, we continue to promote chess for all, within the Bolton area and beyond via our website.


Owing to the prevailing circumstances regarding the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the Executive Committee has decided that our best course of action is, regrettably, to suspend all scheduled fixtures, from Tuesday 17th March, until further notice. This decision will be reviewed in due course, when circumstances permit.
