The Warwick Chess Society provides plenty of opportunities for chess players to enjoy, compete, and socialize;

  • We cater to all levels from those learning how the knights move to chess masters wanting to participate at high level competitions.
  • Support is highly valued in our society which is reflected in the numerous opportunities to both receive and provide support within the context of chess.
  • We pride ourselves on having a diverse and engaged body of members who give our society a welcoming, relaxed, and enjoyable atmosphere.
