About the club
Phones Chess Club prides itself on being a friendly club. Players of all levels and strengths can be assured of a warm welcome and a game to match their ability. We have teams in Division 2 and 3 of the Glasgow Chess League as well as our own tournaments, you can play as seriously or as casually as you like.
New members are always welcome – just come along to the venue and you should be able to get a game and meet some of the members.
The Chess Club meets on Wednesday evenings, between 7.20-10.00 pm for the adult members. (Months of October to June).
Club is open throughout the year, except during the summer when we normally are closed and also on major bank holidays (Christmas and New Year etc). Venue details are at the foot of this page.
There are several teams and so plenty of matches to play in, if you want to play graded, competitive matches at some point. We also have informal games on club nights and welcome newcomers of all abilities and we only ask people to join after a few weeks attendance. Come along and show us the way you move!
Junior Chess Club meets from 6.45-7.45pm.
The club hosts a junior hour which starts at 6.45pm, children and their parents are welcome, and coaching is free, with a small membership fee required.
Send an email to one of the coaches for more info. or on joining the club. Colin Paterson and John Mcintyre are the registered Chess Scotland coaches, we also get assistance from club members and parents in attendance.
We ask only that the juniors join as school pupil members – at a one-off charge of £5 per season (Autumn and Spring). For more information contact John, Luke or Colin (details below), or use the website form to contact us.
AGM June 18th 2018, key points:
- Adult/senior members: For season 2018/19, rate will be £20 for the year for all (waged and unwaged).
- Junior members: For season 2018/19, rate will be £5 for the term before Christmas and then an extra £5 for term after Christmas. (i.e. £10 total for the year).
The club will most likely be meeting on Wednesday evenings from October 2018. Same venue, and we remain grateful and feel lucky to be hosted by St Andrew Bridge Club.
