More about Greater London Club

Greater London Chess Club is a small, friendly chess club, based in central London. We run five league teams and organise an active programme of internal tournaments and special events to suit players of all strengths. Originally the works club for the Greater London Council and its predecessors, we're now open to all players, irrespective of employment, and about half of our current membership is drawn from beyond the ranks of the GLC. We remain the chess club for players who have worked for the Greater London Council, London Residual Body, Inner London Education Authority or the current Greater London Authority, who are eligible for our London Civil Service, Post Office and Municipal Chess League teams. We're always keen to recruit new members of all playing strengths for our league teams and club activities. You can get an idea of what the club does by browsing this site. We've been featured in Metro Newspaper, as a setting in a bestselling thriller and have advised a theatre company on the depiction of chess in a major London production. We hope you will want to join us! Visit the Calendar page to see what's happening in the new season. We also have a page on Facebook. Some of our club tournaments are open to non-members too, on payment of the non-member entry fee.
