Welcome to the Warrington and District Chess League  Homepage

 IMPORTANT !! Corona Virus  - Continued suspension of all Matches.


Due to the spread of the Covid-19 (Coronavirus), the Warrington and District Chess League Executive Committee have taken the decision to continue the suspension of all WDCL Chess matches.


With regard to attending a Chess club night, please be reminded of the government guidelines and to be particularly vigilant regarding hygiene, and not attending public places if feeling unwell.

It’s with deep regret that we’ve had to take this decision, but feel that it’s in the best interests of all the members of the WDCL.


If anyone has any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Take care
