Welcome to the u3a Chess Network. It’s an initiative created by our two chess subject advisors David Castle and Rob Kruszynski.
The aim of the Network is to encourage local u3a chess groups who play face-to-face and the playing of chess online at the local, regional and national level. All chess abilities are catered for and we especially welcome members who have just started playing chess.
When you join the Chess Network you will receive occasional newsletters, invitations to Zoom meetings and the opportunity to contact other u3a Chess Network members who would like to play online.
To join the Chess Network see our Join page.
If you would like advice on starting a Chess group in your u3a contact the Network leader by email via the Contact page on this website or go to the Chess Subject Advisor on the national U3A website.
Regional Chess Advisors
