Welcome to Phones Chess Club

Update (21-05-18): the Junior chess club will not be running from and including Monday May 21st.

However we are going to run a friendly mini-tournament for juniors from Monday June 11th. These sessions will be slightly longer at 2 hours.

Some of our juniors have been achieving fine successes at the Scottish junior tournaments, congrats to them – very proud! :)

Club Championship latest: 

Monday night (21 May), is the club championship catch up night. Final round is 28th May.

Anyone else wishing a serious game can challenge an opponent in our A D Brown tournament. The rate of play is the same  30 moves in 1 hour and a 15 minute allegro finish. Results in this tournament need to be reported to John McKinstry.

The final round of the club championship is the following Monday 28th May. I will send out the draw once I have received the results of the 2 outstanding games

The Chess Club meets on Monday evenings, between 7.30-10.00 pm for the adult members.

We 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 6.15-7.15pm Monday evenings.

Junior Testimonial

The club hosts a junior hour from 6.15pm – children and their parents are welcome, and coaching is free, with a small membership fee. The junior hour now runs until 7.15pm to allow preparation for the adult session.

We now have set up a waiting list for the Junior club, as we have reached our maximum number of junior members. This means anyone wanting to become new junior members will be put on a waiting list for next season. This does not affect current members.

Colin Paterson, Luke Barker 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 an annual one-off charge of £5. For more information contact John or Luke or Colin (details below), or use the website form to contact us.

About the club

We have teams in Division 1, 2 and 3 of the Glasgow Chess League and with two major internal 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.

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).
