About Us

The Open University's online Chess Club is a place for all chess enthusiasts from across the globe!

Whether you're a complete beginner, or the OU's answer to Magnus Carlsen, we'd love for you to join our ranks. We will operate mainly online via chess.com and/or lichess – however, there may be opportunities to meet up at tournaments and events, particularly in the UK. We will host monthly club nights, run a regular puzzle league, and compete in online competitions.
