About Us


Aims and Objectives:

  1. Dedicated to encouraging as many people as possible to play the great game of chess. Whether you're a Chess Master or new to the game, you are very welcome to come along to the society and meet other fans of chess.
  2. We are a social club. We aim to foster a light-hearted and relaxed atmosphere so that everyone feels comfortable, regardless of skill level.
  3. Meet regularly where we have both friendly and, for those so inclined, fiercely competitive battles and competitions.
  4. Offer the opportunity for players of all abilities to represent the University in our team in the Devon Chess League as well as at the British Universities' Chess Association (BUCA) Championships.

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.
