Brighton and Hove Junior Chess Club 

Advanced group:  Luke Rutherford  

Improvers group:  Callum Brewer  

The Junior Club runs every Thursday in term time from 6:00 - 7:00 pm. 


Junior Chess is cancelled for now due to coronavirus. The Adult Club is also closed.

Our improvers group is now at capacity and closed to new members but experienced juniors with an ECF grade* may still apply to join the advanced group.

(*An English Chess Federation grade can be achieved by playing in tournaments such as those run by Sussex Junior Chess.)

Our age range is 7-16 years.  All coaches have DBS approval.    


Junior Club members are not entitled to attend the senior club sessions but sufficiently advanced juniors may apply to join. This would mean they could join the adult tournaments and attend on Saturdays as well. We hope all our juniors will go on to be adult members of the club.
