About Us

We are excited to be launching the UK Chess Challenge Online Chess Club. We will be running regular tournaments and events every week for players of all abilities to compete, have fun and hopefully become better chess players in the process!

New members of all strengths and ages are welcome. The club has an ethos where stronger players are encouraged to help with informal coaching, which is available to all.

We run chess clubs on each of the following chess platforms.
