Next Meetup

Chess and chat! :)
This is for anyone who has either been to one of our chess lessons, or would like to. :) Basically, we'll be catching up with people we met, meeting new people, playing chess, chatting randomly and enjoying a fun Friday night at the chess cafe. Food and drinks are available, but optional. Suspend your disbelief for a moment...there's usually a party atmosphere on Friday nights. The chess cafe itself is not women-only, just a heads up. The guys are very nice and well-trained. ;) Women, guys from groups currently underrepresented in the chess community, or on a low income are exempted from the Friday night £3 contribution towards running/equipment costs.

What we're about

Hi, and welcome to Casual Chess! :) We're all about making chess fun, fast-paced, lively, creative and for everyone. We play in gorgeous surroundings, chatting, teasing and making friends as we go - absolutely no seriousness or shushing!

Free coaching for female players in a welcoming atmosphere. 'Casual Chess' runs six nights a week: it's ideal if your first time is a meet up, but not essential. Please join the Facebook group Casual Chess Cafe London if you'd like to come before the next meet up, and give us a heads up there so we can make sure you have a warm welcome. :)
