Bray Chess Academy

Chess Pieces

Welcome to the Bray Chess Academy. The Academy has been set up to promote chess amongst young persons in Bray and the surrounding area. It is affiliated to the Bray/Greystones Chess Club but provides dedicated access for a younger cohort to the chess facilities, training and peers. Tuition is available at the highest national standard where basic and more advanced elements of chess are taught in an open friendly forum

We meet in the Esplanade Hotel on Wednesdays between 17.30 and 19.00. The season runs typically between September and June to suit school holidays. The membership includes boys and girls between 7 and 18 years of age. They typically work in groups to suit their level with both individual development and teamwork encouraged.


Annual subscriptions are payable on registration at €50 per member per year, to be paid to the Club Treasurer.

Please ensure that the membership form is completed in full so we have sufficient information to ensure child safety at all times.
