Begin playing or training chess

The club hosts activities for players of all ages and playing strengths. We want to help all our members to become better chess players. Besides the regular lectures we also have a series of club competitions during the year: club cups, in long games and blitz, and Luciablixten. Additionally, many of our members play in the team league and other competitions across Sweden.


On Thursdays the club has chess training for juniors under the direction of Anton Frisk Kockum and Alf Björsson with support by Johan Eksmyr. On these occasions, the junior players have the opportunity to get training according to their skill level. The training combines play, solving combinations, analysis of games, and lectures about openings, middlegame, and endgame play.

Thursdays kl. 17.30-19.30.

If you have a junior who is interested in starting to play chess, just come by on a Thursday and try it out!
