Aigburth Chess Club

Our chess club caters for players of all standards from novice to expert.

Our teams play in divisions 1, 3, 4 and 5 of the Merseyside league. We have also entered a team in the new 500 League which has 4 players with a combined total of less than 500 points and we also play in the cup competitions.

The fourth team is suitable for the average player and the League has changed the rules to allow juniors to play a whole game in 1 hour each so juniors can finish and be away by 9.30 pm at the latest. Playing in the league will give you experience of competitive chess in a friendly environment. As players gain in experience they often play at a much higher standard and progress through the teams.

Are you a beginner? Played chess years ago but gave it up, or maybe dabbled with internet chess? Would you like to play but are worried you are not good enough?

Come along and have a chat. We can arrange some free lessons or try to help in any way you need. The hardest part is to say "hello"
