Chess Club- Female Members

    I'm interested in joining a chess club on the northside.
    I've taken a look at the websites of the 2 clubs which are nearest to me and judging by the pics and articles it seems as if most of the adult members are male. Just wondering if there are any female club members out there? :)
    Im in my early twenties by the way.



  • Hi,

    I'm afraid that chess is one of the most male dominated sports out there. There are some women that play with clubs in Dublin but not many. If you'd like to find a club with a some other women playing then it could be worth sending an email to the Irish Chess Unions women's officer - contact details are here.

    For what it's worth, chess is one of the great equalisers. I'd be a reasonable standard club player and have been beaten by men, women, even kids whose feet don't touch the floor when they're sitting down!

  • Register on a fantastic website where u will find a lot of female chess players , You'll also find players from all level. Great site to learn & improve..

    Wish we had more players from dublin there,.
