Chess Development

If you are interested in learning to play chess, or if you understand the basics and want to develop your game to become a better player, come along to our club night which starts at 8pm and we will help you to improve.

When you are ready we will introduce you to the world of competitive chess and you will be able to play for Gravesend against other clubs.
