Lichess group for Charlton Chess Club players, juniors, friends, acquaintances and assorted hangers-on.

Charlton Chess Club was founded in 1933 and met at Charlton House for most of its history before relocating to Mycenae House in 2018. Several strong grandmasters have played for the club, most notably David Bronstein (1951 World championship challenger), Murray Chandler, Nigel Davies, Neil McDonald, Danny Gormally and Stuart Milner-Barry (a player with no less than four opening variations to his name). Past triumphs include winning Division 1 of the London League three times (1978, 1979 and 1996), and many successes in the different divisions of the Kent League (lastly winning the Lewis Cup in 2015).

Over the board, Charlton currently compete in both the London and Kent Leagues. Post lockdown, the club has expanded into the online realm, and competes in both the 4NCL & Junior 4NCL Online, the League of Mayhem (which was won by Charlton in its inaugural season) and the London Online Chess League. We also run weekly internal arena tournaments and a junior coaching class.

All standards of player and junior are welcome. Drop by any Monday evening for a friendly game!

Location: Mycenae House, London (Mondays, 7-10pm)
