This is the official website for the Dorset County Chess Association (DCCA) and the Bournemouth and District Chess League (B&DCL). It covers not only events run by those organisations but also provides information on other chess activities in Dorset.
We recognise the importance of juniors to the future of chess and actively seek to encourage and develop young chess players. We organise junior tournaments including the Dorset Junior Championship, inter-school competitions, and regular junior learning groups. To oversee this we have a dedicated Junior Chess Coordinator. More information is available in our Junior Chess section.
