Chess Club

Sports Development

The chess club is a place for chess players of all standards to meet. We aim to 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 aim to play competitive chess at a variety of levels. We run tournaments within the club, and travel to tournaments elsewhere, encouraging our members to get more involved in chess.

Club nights are Thursdays, 7:30-10:00 in the Us. café under the student union 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.

Maths Society

Departmental

SUMS is a Society set up with the intention of giving Southampton Mathematics students the chance to socialise together outside of lectures. Our main aim is to hold socials that everyone can enjoy, from fancy dress pub /house crawls. We hope everyone can find something to join in with.We also offer the opportunity for you to join one of our sports teams; check out the Sports page for more info. If you enjoy playing a sport for fun and don't want anything too serious or with too much commitment, If there is a sport you want to play that we don't currently have a team for, just let us know and we will see what we can do :).And finally SUMS also provides you with career related events. After all, that is the reason why most of us are at University (to get that all-important degree). Through the careers events we aim to offer you a chance to meet and talk to possible future employers, to ask them questions and seek their advice on what to do after University.We aim to offer something for everyone. SUMS is a society created for you.
