Clubs & Societies Directory
The Cambridge University Chess Club (CUCC) exists to promote the playing of chess within the University. From absolute beginners to international masters, the club encourages participation by players of all strengths and offers a friendly, constructive and social platform for chess enthusiasts. We arrange a wide variety of events for our members and hold chess gatherings every Saturday of term.
The Club has teams in the 4NCL (4 Nations Chess League) and the highly prestigious Varsity matches against Oxford (for which there are Freshers' and second team matches also) are the annual highlights . For our members, we hold numerous events throughout the year such as the Freshers' Blitz, Club chess championship, winter blitz, friendly matches against local clubs (Town vs Gown) just to name a few. Additionally, attractive subsidies are provided to club members who represent Cambridge in the British University Chess Association (BUCA) championships and other notable events- a huge plus if you are an active chess player!
For all chess enthusiasts, the college chess league was set up with the aim of promoting competitive chess. What better way to stoke the competitive spirit than by pitting University members from different colleges against one another?.
