1. The Chess Club

    Know your bishop from your knight? Your rook from your pawn? Want to learn more? Join the Söder chess club!

    We have players at a range of levels from beginner upwards and regularly run online tournaments on www.chess.com.

    If you are interested in playing, go to www.chess.com , create a profile and hit one of us up for a game, or contact Brissles by email to find out more about it.

    While we play online regularly, we also catch up to play over the board, usually in conjunction with a homebrew club night and tasting! While we continually play online tournaments, and plan to catch up more regularly throughout the year for over the board competitions, the main event of the year is the Söder Chess Championship which is played after the end of the footy season as one of the “Winter Major Events” in either November or December.
