Cricket Club

Who doesn't love a spot of chess? Exactly. Well this is the club for you! Downend & Fishponds are one of the largest chess clubs in the South West of England. We're home to a whole range of ages and skills, for players who want to play socially, competitively, or simply improve their game.


Downend & Fishponds are the current Bristol & District champions in the top three divisions as well as winners of the knockout cup. With six teams in the league, most aiming for titles, all members are given the opportunity to play as much competitive league chess as they like, regardless of skill or experience.



We meet every Tuesday at the clubhouse of Downend Cricket Club, from 19:30. We're always on the look out for new players, so come along and give it a go!
