Welcome to Albany Chess!

Established in 1997, Albany Chess was created to promote the game of chess through involvement and activities within the club. We are a friendly and active Chess club located in the suburbs of Albany in Tyne and Wear.

We run several league teams and organize internal tournaments and event to suit all members of our chess club. We meet at the Albany Chess Club every Thursday events from 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm.

Our annual chess tournaments are held during every first month of the year with an all-play-play opportunity for our members. Aside from the major tournament, we also hold casual monthly tournaments to give our members a boost in skill enhancement and keeping their game sharp all year long.

We are always open to recruiting new members of all levels and strengths for our league teams and activities. If you are interested in joining our club, please check out our membership page for more information.
