Dear Parents, Kids & All Our Chess Friends!

We are delighted to announce that the Chelsea Chess Club will return in September. Established in 2019, the club now welcomes over 30 weekly members.

Our junior chess club in central London is staffed by four expert coaches. The Chess Rising Stars team ensures that children are grouped with those of a similar age and chess level. We also support more experienced children who intend to compete in chess tournaments and team matches.

For younger children seeking to join the Chelsea Chess Club, we would advise starting with our new Chelsea Chess Club for 5 to 7-year-olds. Our experienced coaches will provide you with feedback regarding the club’s suitability and information about our alternative chess courses if required.

Each week, we offer a mixture of chess lessons, friendly games, and an internal tournament with plenty of prizes for the winners!

Registration is now open for the Autumn Term.
