Hi! Welcome to The Queen’s Gambit Chess online chess courses and sociable chess cafe for women, and to the Casual Chess Cafe (currently online, reopening live soon).

FREE ONLINE CHESS LESSONS FOR WOMEN, taught by women! 🙂  Most people come alone, all the groups are fun, welcoming and friendly. Lessons are kept simple and empowering – anyone can learn with us.  We offer FREE classes for Absolute Beginners and for women who know how to play, but want to improve, as well as paid courses and workshops – see our schedule here

Our next paid structured, 6-week courses for women who already know how the pieces move, but would enjoy improving, start on Wednesday 8th (Level 1) or Monday 13th September (Openings) at 5:30pm UK time (which is 12:30pm lunchtime in New York). Proceeds contribute to our work helping more women getting into chess and promoting equality and diversity in chess. More info/sign up for courses here
