Richmond Junior Chess Club was founded in 1975 and over the years has produced many titled players including Grandmasters such as Luke McShane and Jonathan Rowson.
We are committed to providing top level tuition and opportunities for competitive play for children of all ages who are serious about chess.
The West London Chess Club is run on Saturday mornings and tuition is given by Meri, a West London Chess Club member who is a woman FIDE master, England Women's National Team Member and ECF Accredited Coach.
There is clear evidence to demonstrate that children who learn chess perform better in school, have improved calculating ability, are more imaginative, creative, and self-motivated. Did you know that chess and reading are decision-making activities.
