ABOUT THE CLUB

The original Epsom Chess Club existed from 1931 to 1967, led throughout by a legend of Surrey chess, Hector Marshall. However, due to competition from other clubs and the difficulty of finding a permanent playing location, it went out of existence just over 50 years ago.

In 2018, two keen chess-playing friends,
Marcus Gosling and Ravi Sharma, decided to
re-establish Epsom Chess Club.

Our adult team is aiming for promotion from Division 4 of the Surrey League in 2019/20, and a junior section will soon run on Thursday evenings.

Our club night takes place on Monday evenings in the back section of The Rising Sun pub, which is just a 5 minute walk from Epsom town centre.

MEMBERSHIP

Chess players of all abilities are most welcome at Epsom Chess Club.

Serious players will have the opportunity to represent us in a number of matches in Surrey league and cup competitions, whereas casual players will be able to hone their skills against other members over a drink.

Annual membership fees for the adult club are as follows:

ADULT FULL MEMBER                    -    £20.00

PLAYERS AGED UNDER 18             -    free

Entry into the Club Championship (our annual internal competition) is free. We will also run additional internal competitions and fun events throughout the year.

 
PERSONAL TUITION

Epsom Chess Club president, Marcus Gosling, teaches in a large number of schools around Surrey and South London.

He also runs private one-to-one sessions on weeknights for both children and adults. As well as chess, he teaches Russian, French and English as a Foreign Language.
