Join the fun, join ASSU, the best Club around.


We are a Chess Club that is integral at the University Campus at Umeå University. Modelled back in 2013, after the Amercian university Chess Club system, we decided to start up our own club, get former club players going, let us serve under our own flag and draft students, that come here and often are chess players. We believe we can grow and become a huge social group and not only a regular chess club. We have social activities, parties, dinners, games and other stuff on the menue for you! At the moment we are around 40 members that are playing. In a total since the opening almost 100 people have played and visited our club. We have had more than 20 international students visiting us. And currently we run two teams in the Swedish Chess Leauge system. ASSU 1 plays in Div II and ASSU II plays in Div III. Our goal is to always prosper, have an open athmosphere and let everyone feel welcomed.
