Formby Chess Club is long established club which welcomes players of varying standards from Formby and the surrounding areas. It is now firmly based on Tuesday nights at the Ravenmeols Community Centre with car parking and in a very comfortable well equipped room which by general consensus is amongst the best in the Merseyside Association lacking only a licensed bar but with the Railway pub closeby. The main competitive season runs from September to May during which period the club enters 5 teams in the Merseyside League. During this season the teams will be in Division 1, Division 3, Division 4, Restricted Grade 440 Division and the 600 division thus giving opportunities for competitive play to all members of long experience or relative newcomers to the game. There are also 2 cup knock out teams.
