Chess! Check It Out!

21 October, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm


Beginner, Improver, Returner or budding Master, watch or play Chess with Streatham and Brixton Chess Club at the permanent Chess tables at the top of Streatham Common. 

What is the game of Chess? It is challenging, it is exciting and it is fun. Once you’ve learnt the basic moves, the possibilities on the 64 squares are endless. Young and old, girls and boys, can pit their wits and buff-up their brain cells in the game’s mix of sharp tactics and deep strategy.

Streatham and Brixton Chess Club, established over 150 years ago,  has a proud history of chess in our community. We’d love to share our passion for the game with you. So we are inviting you to come along and play a bit (if you know the moves already), or just watch us at it if you’d prefer.

We’ll have a drop-in/drop-out continuous simultaneous exhibition for all-comers, as well as a giant chess set for you to play around with.

You could be a beginner who has just learnt the moves, an ‘improver’ keen to develop your skills, a ‘returner’ dusting off the moves after a break. You might even be a wannabe World Champion!

If you get hooked, you may want to visit our informal, free and fun, drop in sessions 4.30 – 7.30 pm at Streatham Library.

You can find out about our serious chess activities at https://streathamchess.org/ .

Here’s your chance to try Chess! We hope you will check it out!
