Chess Society (ChessSoc)

  • Groupsicon


Hello chess fans!

Chess has a bit of a boring reputation, but that is not how we look at it.  We are dedicated to showing people that chess can be fun.  We do this by holding weekly sessions in D bar for casual games of chess with banter.  Come down with a friend, and have a good time.  Every term our tournament director will organise at least one tournament for members to enter.

If you are not impressed by this, and take your chess seriously, do not fear.  We play chess competitively in the local league each week and once a year in the Roses varsity against Lancaster.

Whether you want to be the new Magnus Carlsen, or you just want to play a few games with a beer in hand, we are the society for you!
