ChessMates is owned and led by Verity Pettit, who has a decade of experience teaching infant and primary school chess. The ethos of the club is to learn chess through happy and fun, yet structured, club sessions and play, aiming to inspire a lifelong love of the game in each child.

Verity is supported by key helpers and in addition she welcomes senior school age volunteers who have taken their chess to a higher level and who come to help mentor the children.
