Chess Club

Sports Development

The Chess Club is a place for chess players of all standards to meet. We provide equipment for casual play at club nights, to practice and improve, and provide an environment in which players can learn from one another and analyse games they have played.

We also play competitive chess at a variety of levels. We run tournaments within the club, and travel to external tournaments, encouraging our members to get more involved in chess. Our club nights are Thursday evenings, 7:30-10:00pm in the SUSU Cafe on the 3rd floor of the SUSU building..


Membership Information

These are the current membership plans offered by Chess Club, although many groups offer a free period for new members to try out their group.

  • Year Membership (£10)
    This membership fee mainly helps support our club activities throughout the academic year; these include funding transport whenever our teams have to play away games, as well as buying new equipment to cater for the increase in our membership. However, turning up to club nights is free, and you are welcome to come along regardless.
