KCL Chess Society


Sorry, there are no memberships available to purchase.

Welcome to the KCL Chess Society page! We are a group of chess enthusiasts spanning a huge range of abilities, so whether you're an outright beginner, or an aspiring challenger for the World Chess Champion title, you'll be sure to find a chess home here at KCLCS :)

We hold sessions weekly, interspersed with some fun within-society tournaments, lessons, and chess league matches against other unis and clubs across London.

There's never any pressure at KCLCS - those who wish to play recreationally are equally as welcome and invited to join as those who wish to play more seriously.
