About Us

Our society is dedicated to encouraging as many people as we can to play the great game of chess. We welcome all levels of players;  whether you are completely new to the game or a Grand Master, you'll be welcome here! The society meets regularly where we have both friendly and, for those so way inclined, fiercely competitive battles and competitions. For our more experienced players, we offer the chance to represent the university in our team
