About GP Chess

Greenwich Peninsula Chess Club was founded by Nick Templar and Andrew Pavord in 2021. We play chess over the board (otb) because its more fun than playing online.

We fund these endeavours through our own pockets (though lately some funding has been supplied by sponsors). We ask that you participate by attending our events and playing your best!

GP Chess Club is free of charge, (though there is a registration fee for tournaments), and open to chess players of all abilities.

About the club

Weekly sessions

We currently meet every Sunday afternoon (12-5) at The Old Brewery; an amazing venue in the grounds of The Royal Naval College in Greenwich. We ask that you buy food and drinks, as a way of saying thanks to The Old Brewery for their support.

In the summer months, we host Saturday sessions at the “Seafood Disco” Table, near the Jetty, off Olympic Way SE10 0GE.

If you want to know what’s happening, join our Facebook group ‘Greenwich Peninsula Chess’ which is updated regularly.


You can post anything chess related into the group including any online games you play. We hope to nurture your ability and understanding of this infinitely complex game by sharing ideas and holding discussions; so please do join.
