Online Chess

Whatever your level, you are invited to join the Chess Circle online where we replicate our Club evenings, host online tournaments and hopefully much more. In order to join you need to follow some steps.

Step 1

Please register on chess.com, you can skip this step if you are already registered.

Go to chess.com and on the home page on the left hand side click ‘Sign Up’.

Provide the details requested and select a memorable username – this is the name you need to provide in Step 2 and is the name you will be known by. You can sign up for a premium account if you wish or maybe start with the free one and upgrade later.

Step 2

Email chess-support@royalautomobileclub.co.uk to confirm that you want to join the Chess Circle online and include in your chess.com username. By providing these details you confirm that you are happy for the Chess Committee to contact you directly.

Step 3

You will then receive an invitation from the administrator to join the Chess Circle online. You need to accept this invitation from within your chess.com account and on your home page you will then see your Club.

You will then be able to play games online against other members and indeed the wider chess world.

If you have any difficulties then please email chess-support@royalautomobileclub.co.uk, explain the problem, leave your contact number and a member of the committee will give you a call to help.

Once ‘joined-up’ you will receive invitations to join the weekly tournaments.
