ECF Chess for All Online Festival Starts Sunday!

Join ECF exciting course of week's training and tournaments aimed at beginners and improvers! Plus spread the word if you know anybody else that might be interested. Thanks.

As Muhammad Ali once said, “Even the greatest was once a beginner.” The Queen’s Gambit and Covid-19 have combined to inspire many people to take up chess for the first time or perhaps revisit it, having lapsed. We welcome everyone to join our Chess for All Festival where we will be holding a week of training and tournaments aimed at beginners and improvers (both juniors and adults).

ECF are pleased to announce that IM Lorin D'Costa will be coaching the improvers and Lateefah Messam-Sparks will be coaching the beginners. GM Keith Arkell and IM Lorin D'Costa will be doing a simul each. For only £15, entrants can get four training sessions as well as access to special tournaments. The Festival will run from Sunday 30th May to Friday 4th June. More details and the schedule at the ECF's Chess Festival Page at and sign up now at our registration page at
