Welcome to the Imperial College London Chess Club! Whether you’re a complete beginner looking to pick up a new hobby or that titled player ready to sweep the field, we have a place for you here. Join us for a year filled with everything from friendly club nights to socials to competitive FIDE-rated tournaments across the country!
Meet us at our club night in Meeting Room 3 (MR3) on the 3rd floor of the Imperial College Union building, Mondays from 18:30-21:00. We play friendly games, analyse recent big matches, frequently hold prized blitz tournaments and hopefully get to know each other too. Above all, don’t miss our pizza nights on the first Mondays of every month!
Every year we have opportunities for rated chess:
• London Chess League; ECF-rated weekly matches (generally on Tuesdays or Thursdays), with 10 spots available.
• Central London Chess Congress; FIDE-rated tournaments that we host twice a year (usually during November and April) with around 100 participants. Discounted entry fee for all club members.
• British Universities’ Chess Association (BUCA) Championship; a FIDE-rated 4-player team event where the best from every university compete to become UK’s #1 university team.
• and more!
This club is a great place for chess enthusiasts to play and socialize. Do not let go of this golden opportunity to meet like-minded people from other courses. We look forward to seeing you at our club nights!
