Saturday Chess Club

Leicester Junior Chess runs a club at from 2-4.15pm most Saturday afternoons (see Calendar) throughout the school year for 6 – 18 year olds. We are very fully booked so potential new members should contact Alan Agnew (details below) before attending the club.

The sessions are usually at Westleigh Christadelphian Church, Westleigh Road, LE3 0HH with children divided into ability groups.

The first hour is group coaching with the 2nd hour devoted to competitive chess game practice.

Once a month, instead of our regular Saturday training, club members (free) and guests (entry £6) are given the opportunity to play in an informal Swiss (everyone plays in every round) competition over 4 rounds lasting about 3 hours It’s run in sections, defined by playing level rather than age. There’s a small award to the section winner and the result are published online.

Throughout the year the club targets and encourages all juniors of to compete in external individual and team competitions appropriate to their playing level. See Competitions.
