About Us

We strive to be a friendly, successful and inclusive chess club, organising both competitive and social chess events.

All are welcome as members, both young and old. We suggest that juniors also consider our partner club Barnet Knights, as they offer an environment which may be more tailored to their needs. We take great pride in the way young players are included in our events, as and when they are ready!

We have won the Middlesex League nine times, and been runners-up twice, since 2009. See our roll of honour.


During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are focusing on online events. Up-to-date information on this situation may be found here.

In normal times, our home venue is Golders Green Unitarian Church, Hoop Lane, London NW11 8BS (map), which is a short walk away from Golders Green Underground station. Entry is via the side door on the right-hand side of the hall.

Details of our activities, such as club nights and tournaments, may be found here.
