The Jersey Chess Club

The Jersey Chess Club (JCC) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting the joys and benefits of chess, holding weekly games and chess tournaments in order to give Jersey players an outlet to play. There are 30-40 members of The Jersey Chess Club with between 20-30 each year competing in the Island Championships.

Player ability at the Jersey Chess Club ranges from 1200 up to nearly 2200 and the top 16 players on the island compete in the annual inter-island match between Jersey and Guernsey with the island champion on both islands playing on board 1 and competing for the title of Channel Island Champion. The club also boasts a successful European Small Nations and Chess Olympiad team and runs competitive leagues where players can qualify for these events through their league position as well as Blitz and Rapidplay tournaments throughout the season and casual games for anyone unable to enter the competitions.
