Dear Parents, Kids & All Our Chess Friends!
We are delighted to announce that the Chelsea Chess Club will be back for its 10th term. Established in 2019, the club now welcomes over 30 weekly members.
Our junior chess club is staffed by 4 expert coaches. We ensure that children are grouped with those of a similar age and chess level. One group is exclusively for children who are new to chess and forms an ideal introduction to the game. For more experienced children, we offer support to those intending to compete in chess tournaments and team matches.
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 2023

Our experienced coaches will provide you with feedback regarding the suitability of the club and information about alternative chess courses, if required. Trial lessons are priced at the single lesson rate above.
Trial lessons for 5 y.o. are only available in the first 3 weeks of each term
