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, 6:30-10:30pm in the Bridge in the top floor of the SUSU building, as well as extra unscheduled meetings on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, announced shorter notice to our Facebook group..
