Someone to play with

Sometimes it can be difficult to find opponents and that's how a lot of games clubs begin. If, like lots of other people, you're not surrounded by friends who share your passion we hope there will soon be a group here that caters for you.

If you would like to submit a group to be listed here, or you have any other news or information about games clubs please get in touch.

We have also begun to add online playing sites to this page.
