About Group

Whatever your standard of playing, Chess Society will be able to pair you up with someone of similar ability for games at their social sessions.

They are open to beginners playing chess for the first time and can show you the rules and techniques necessary to play well and also welcome those interested in playing competitively for the University in the Leeds Chess League and British Universities Championship.

We meet Mondays from 7pm-9pm in Room 2, Level 2 in the Union. COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to Covid, we are no longer meeting in person. Instead we are running a Lichess arena Mondays from 7pm-9pm. A Lichess account is free and you can join and leave the arena as you please. For instructions please join the Facebook group or email us directly.


Membership is just £2.50 for the year and allows you to use the boards, attend training sessions and play competitively for the university.
