Chess For Girls
“Chess has played an important role in my life and I am keen to share that. I moved to Greece when I was a young girl but I didn’t speak any Greek. Joining the local chess club changed my life because chess has its own language. It helped me to make friends and become more confident.”
We are keen to promote and create opportunities for girls to play chess with us. We already have an active community of girls who take part in our online clubs, lessons and the Elite Club and we are looking to grow this still further.
Our Chess Rising Star, Sheng, was the U10 Girls Champion at the 2023 UK Chess Challenge Terafinal held at Blenheim Palace. We are looking to build on this success with our new Girls’ Online Chess Club.
