About Dundee Chess Club.

Dundee Chess Club was founded in 1847 and is the leading chess club in the area, being the third oldest club in Scotland.   We organise chess events and activities for all standards of players,  including coaching for both juniors and adults.

We participate in the premier Scottish team event, the Richardson Cup, and enter teams in the Tayside & Fife Chess League (current holders of the Division 1 Championship) and other events including the Scottish National League (where teams are entered jointly with the local Castlehill Chess Club)
With members ranging from Grandmaster to novice we welcome players of all ages and all abilities. Casual games, competitions and tournaments are played in a welcoming and friendly atmosphere.
Why not come along and bring a friend with you!?
