About Checkmate!

Checkmate! hosts events that bring people together to play chess & socialise.

You don't need any experience playing chess. Whether it's your first game or your hundredth game, Checkmate! offers a safe, relaxed environment for everyone to enjoy the game.

Checkmate! is a way of helping to improve people's mental health, connecting our communities following the pandemic, and challenging stereotypes around chess being stuffy and old-fashioned.

We are bringing a fresh and fun perspective whilst playfully challenging the stigma attached to the game!
