Getting Started

To get started with chess online you’ll need to use one of the internet’s many chess websites, but how can you choose the best one?

  • Lichess is totally free and the organisation is non-profit, we think you’ll agree their website it slick and accessible
  • We have produced a free Teachable course to help newcomers to online chess with finding their way around the site, to access this click the “teachable course” words below
