Lichess: your club nights online

Keep you Club Nights alive - online!

With Lichess (info on wikipedia) you can organise club nights online. Lichess offers tournaments, trainings and much more. Have a look:

A few words at the beginning

Lichess is a french charity, non-commercial, without ads, keeps your privacy, does no data-mining and does not transfer any data to third parties. You may read their Terms of Service and their Privacy Policy to confim yourself. It is free and costs nothing.

About is a free/libre, open-source chess server powered by volunteers and donations. Most “free” websites subsist by selling ads or selling user data. Others do it by putting all the good stuff behind paywalls.
